We run an AFS cell with a kerberos 5 kdc and still have krb5/kas 
authentication in parallel. I'm looking to upgrade the kerberos server 
to version 1.6. This works well in my test setup. My question is "how 
does adding supporting encryption types interact with AFS and windows?"

Here is part of the kdc.conf
   supported_enctypes = des-cbc-crc:normal des-cbc-crc:v4 des-cbc-crc:afs3
Does adding more encryption types hose AFS or windows? I'd like to start 
enabling stronger crypto types so that we have the  option of using them 
in the future.

What do I need to lookout for with this?

BTW, we're still running krb524d because our aklog still needs it.

What do I need to do on the clients to enable use of the stronger crypto
