Thanks, that will save me a bunch of time. Of course I spent my morning testing 
it out to no avail.

Does anyone have instructions on how to setup a Linux bind server to use 
GSS-TSIG against an AD? I have found many articles from people having issues 
with it but none that had good instructions on how to get it working. Last year 
we played around with it but were having issues getting it to work. kinit would 
work against the AD on our RHEL bind server but our clients couldn't update 
their records.
