Samba ad dc server and KDC server both join to same domain but ad dc is not finding the KDC server

Hello All,

I need some help here, I have set-up a computer as a Samba AD DC following this link: and all is working great. Then I setup another computer running Fedora 35 server as a KDC.

I’m having a problem with the AD DC finding the KDC server. I keep getting the error Cannot contact any KDC for realm ‘mydomain’ while getting initial credentials.

my web searches are not finding anything that has helped to resolve this message. Can someone please help me to resolve this?

Please let me know what details you need regarding the various config files for each system and be specific as needed. I’ll respond back with these details ASAP.
