So this opens a chicken and egg?

ie when RHEL6.3 comes out and I upgrade the IPA server(s) to 6.3 all the older 
6.2 clients will break?  but I cant upgrade the clients until after the servers 
are done....if so that is a huge and ugly looking task that is one way....

No, that's not the problem at all. Enrolled clients will work as expected. New 6.3 clients can enroll with a 6.3 server. Based on the log it looks like a 6.3 client can't enroll with a 6.2 server but I'm still investigating. We'll fix it if needed.

I get an error.

Is this expected when trying to connect 6.3beta? ie its simply not compatible?

The newer 2.2 client cannot connect to an older 2.1 server because it
isn't going to send the TGT that the 2.1 server requires. We should
handle this better, I've opened a ticket to track this:
