This should be added automatically/ The hostname should be the
canonical fqdn of the KDC (i.e. not a CNAME)

We are trying the same: Solaris 10 kadmin client talking to MIT 1.4
kadmind. We use a command like

kadmin -p princ/admin

We are prompted for the password. On entering it we see in the kdc logs
that authentication happens:

May 19 11:34:44 ***** krb5kdc[16731](info): AS_REQ (5 etypes {17 16 23
3 1 }) xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx: ISSUE: authtime 1116498884, etypes {rep=16
tkt=16 ses=16}, princ/admin@MY.DOMAIN for kadmin/kdc.fdn@MY.DOMAIN

But the kadmin client responds:

kadmin: GSS-API (or Kerberos) error while initializing kadmin interface

It seems you get further than we do!
