This says the client could not get a ticket for the cvs/<FQDN-of-server>@<realm>
Did you ever add this to AD? The server then needs access to the key
for this account.

  (I have not run cvsnt this way, but have used the cvs-1.12.7 server on
Solaris with the MIT gssapi, AD as the KDC and cvsnt as the clients.
On unix you create a keytab file for the server.)
