That's part of the reason.


The problem here is that now that you've added a Windows machine, your
list of methods the client can use doesn't include the default Windows
authentication mechanism, NTSSPI.  I would set:

  SEC_CLIENT_AUTHENTICATION_METHODS = fs, ntsspi, ssl, password

And you should be all set.

Longer answer:  Behind the scenes, the Linux and OSX daemons include FS as a
default (and not NTSSPI), and Windows daemons include NTSSPI (and not FS).
Your client list can include as many as you like... the server will reconcile
the two lists, so there's no "danger" in including NTSSPI on Linux and FS on
