I have been asked by a provider to add to UDP and TCP a manual record. When I click on the type I only see _Kerberos and the vendor wants a _Kerberos-master entry. Can I just type this in and it will be recognized?

i think you want "other new record" > "service location SRV"

oh hang on a second there, they want you to mess with kerberos dns settings? ....  that can break active directory, can you ask them for clarification/steps to minimize the chance of hurting your server?

The company is Admitmac and to get a Mac to properly attach to Active Directory and Automount volumes they need in Windows 2008 an entry called _kerberos-master. I have entered it but my Admitmac still cannot verify and is complaining about DNS.

I also read through the url you posted and it only mentions 10.3 and 4 not 10.6

kerberos-master is not a record in Windows that I know of.

I am not an expert in Macs but if 10.4 can be added to a domain through that link I assume 10.6 can as well. http://www.macwindows.com/snowleopardAD.html

Make sure the MAC is pointing to the DC only for DNS.

Yes, certainly.

If it's a SRV record you can make the name whatever you want. The drop down box is only there to help out, you do not have to use its entries.
