Thanks Jeffrey.

Our AD admins have made this change--they enabled DES-CBC-MD5 (they
left DES-CBC-CRC disabled). We found another issue, though...

It seems that this RODC is creating issues for us. What appears to be
happening is the RODC issues the server a TGT. When the server
attempts to acquire a TGS, the RODC forwards the request to an RWDC
but that server doesn't honor the TGT issued by the RODC. We were able
to workaround this issue by forcing kerberos to connect to an RWDC. We
verified functionality by successfully enumerating AD user accounts.

With kerberos working now, and with DES-CBC-MD5 enabled, we are still
getting at the same RPC error. It's my understanding that AFS uses the
local krb5 install for authentication--is this the case?
