Hello Lucas,

I see a couple of discrepancies that can mean that
you made a small typing error or that your setup uses short hostnames

this one should not matter at all, though.

Has your client's /etc/hosts or your dns server the record for
"" ?

It means that the client cannot find the server(s) for that realm.
It uses dns or /etc/hosts or "realms" file in venus configuration.
Have you got (some of) them, pointing to the right place?
It would be sufficient to put


(with corresponding address instead of "xx")
in your /etc/hosts

Hope it helps,
