Trouble authenticating with Kerberos & LDAP - (kerberos on w2k3 AD server, ldap on openldap unix)

I've been very frustrated trying to get this to work.  We are trying to
use a windows 2003 server as our Kerberos server, along with our
openldap on solaris as our directory server.  The machines we want to
authenticate on are all Solaris 9.

The ldap tree is fully populated, and working properly.  With our
current nsswitch.conf, logins work using the ldap directory (with
posixAccount & shadowAccount records), as does a getent passwd
Also, we have our Windows 2003 server's directory setup with named
users, and with our current pam.conf, we can authenticate against
kerberos if we have a local passwd entry for that user.  However, if we
remove the local passwd entry, I can't authenticate.

I've already added keytab entries for the ldap host, ldap server
(host/hostname & ldap/hostname), and the server I'm trying to login to.
 I used FQDN's in all my ktpass.exe key generations, but I'm noticing
that most of our machines have short hostnames in their
/etc/hostname.intN files.  DNS resolution does work and returns a

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong here?  A tcpdump reveals that a failed
login attempt talks to both the ldap & kerberos servers, but doesn't
log me in.  Below is my pam.conf.

Never mind.  Had to add session and account sections for ldap, and
remove the kerberos stuff there.  Works great.
