When attempting to join an AIX system to the domain using Quest Authentication Services (QAS) the join fails. Error messages received may be similar to:
"ERROR: Could not join to the domain" and "KRB5_KDC_UNREACH (-1765328228): Cannot contact any KDC for requested realm"
Additional error messages may be received and debug on the join may indicate that hostnames cannot be resolved.
This may be a DNS issue due to an incomplete netsvc.conf file entry.
In the netsvc.conf file on your AIX system, ensure that the appropriate value for "hosts" is being added. For example:
hosts = local, bind
If "bind" is missing from the above line then host names will not be resolved.
