I have a user: oneuser@EXEMPLE.COM as principal and the next krb5.conf:

    default_realm = EXEMPLE.COM
    default_tkt_enctypes = arcfour-hmac-md5 
    default_tgs_enctypes = arcfour-hmac-md5 
    permitted_enctypes   = arcfour-hmac-md5 

            kdc = DC.SUBDOMAIN.EXEMPLE.COM
            admin_server = DC.SUBDOMAIN.EXEMPLE.COM
            default_domain = EXEMPLE.COM


kinit give's me the error "Realm not local to KDC while getting initial credentials". What am i doing wrong? Is there any setup i can do in the conf file so i can use de DC located in a subdomain?
