The "Server not found in Kerberos database" error usually indicates
that it's not asking for the service key you've set up. Your
kerberos logs should tell you what service key it's requesting.
You need to set up a keytab containing that key.
(No, I haven't set something like this up. But the logs on the
kerberos server are often useful in diagnosing obscure failures.)
