     Actually, it's not a credentials issue but a network issue.  DNS 
returns a list IPs for the domain fqdn in a random order.  However, only 
some of the systems in the list have their ports open to me.  Each time 
I try to join, the same system is picked from the list to try to contact 
and it's ports are closed to me.

     I've got the manual kerberos and winbind method to work before but 
I was able to specify which dc to contact then.  I guess I'll have to go 
back to that method.
