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.

That is not a record in DNS.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

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.
