kadmin question

Hi there

A quick question about kadmin support (context MIT : 1.10 - Centos 6.5).

I have successfully setup the KDC w/LDAP backend on a server and 
everything is OK on that side.

On the clients, I am using DNS in order to simplify clients 
configuration (dns_lookup_kdc, dns_lookup_realm = true).
This seems to work for locating the KDC, not for the admin server : 
"kadmin: Missing parameters in krb5.conf required for kadmin client 
while initializing kadmin interface" unless I setup the admin_server 
explicitely  for my realm in /etc/krb5.conf.

I am aware that years ago DNS support for kadmin was not implemented 
(found this through a google search). But hasn't this be fixed since then ?
Or would my LDAP backend be the cause of the issue ?

Thanks in advance
