Unix kerberos configuration is a bit of an art... it's not something I 
can really help with as I've only had it working maybe once :)  FYI I 
get the exact same error when I try from Unix at the moment.

Make sure that you can kinit at least, and that the host is in the keytab.

It'll work without any extra configuration, provided all Windows users 
are logged into the same active directory (not locally).
