Here are the contents of my krb conf with everything set to lookup and it 
doesn't appear to be working.

includedir /var/lib/sss/pubconf/krb5.include.d/

[libdefaults]
  default_realm = MHBE.LIN
  dns_lookup_realm = true
  dns_lookup_kdc = true
  rdns = false
  ticket_lifetime = 24h
  forwardable = yes
  udp_preference_limit = 0


[realms]
  MHBE.LIN = {
    pkinit_anchors = FILE:/etc/ipa/ca.crt

  }


[domain_realm]
  .mhbe.lin = MHBE.LIN
  mhbe.lin = MHBE.LIN
