Have you authenticated from your laptop and do you have a ticket?
Is it a Windows client?
If yes you need to do kinit from the Windows laptop first to obtain a

To do this you need kerberos client installed and configured.
If the laptop is  a part of the IPA domain then this is one scenario if
not then a different.
