We get these periodically on servers distributed across our environments.  In particular, this pertains specifically to some SQL 2000 servers that are in a different subnet then my DC's.  Looking at the logs in the firewalls it doesnt look like any kerberos traffic is being dropped between these environs.  The errors are also intermittent in nature.  The full error from one of these servers is published below.  Other info is our we have a forest with 2 domains, and one of the domains has 2 child domains below it.  Googling it of course turns up jack, so help me!!

Thanks,
Earl

please read about GRADE: C
http://www.experts-exchange.com/help.jsp#hi73

C: Because Experts' reliability are often judged by their grading records, many Experts would like the opportunity to clarify if you have questions about their solutions. If you have given the Expert(s) ample time to respond to your clarification posts and you have responded to each of their posts providing requested information; or if the answers, after clarification, lack finality or do not completely address the issue presented, then a "C" grade is an option. You also have the option here of just asking Community Support to delete the question.

Remember, the Expert helping you today is probably going to be helping you next time you post a question.

Give them a fair chance to earn an 'Excellent!' grade and they'll provide you with some amazing support.
It's also true that a "C" is the lowest grade you can give, and the Experts know that -- so use it judiciously.
