BO XI 3.0 Installation AD Kerberose Authentication Error

I have installed BO XI 3.0 and everything works great, except I cannot logon with my AD account. I have followed all the steps in Administrator Guid and I get an error when I run the kinit.exe:

Exception: krb_error 0 Cannot get kdc for realm NET.ADS.STATE.TN.US No error

KrbException: Cannot get kdc for realm NET.ADS.STATE.TN.US

at sun.security.krb5.KrbKdcReq.send(KrbKdcReq.java:133)

at sun.security.krb5.KrbKdcReq.send(KrbKdcReq.java:106)

at sun.security.krb5.internal.tools.Kinit.sendASRequest(Kinit.java:300)

at sun.security.krb5.internal.tools.Kinit.<init>(Kinit.java:239)

at sun.security.krb5.internal.tools.Kinit.main(Kinit.java:106)

Do I need to open any specific ports? I have a side-by-side installation of BO XI R1 that authenticates using NTLM without a problem.

    kinit uses the JDK and 2 files (bsclogin and krb5) By the message we have found the bsclogin but the krb5 is missing the KDC or it is improperly formatted.

    the KDC should be a fqdn of a DC in your domain (local DC if possible)

    Ususually you can find the DC by running set at the command prompt and looking up your login server. Then ping it or ping -a to get the FQDN. Type this value in your krb5 (ALL CAPS) as your KDC.
