Planning Kerberos Realms

A realm is logical network, similar to a domain, that defines a group of systems that are under the same master KDC. As when establishing a DNS domain name, you must resolve issues such as the realm name, the number and size of each realm, and the relationship of a realm to other realms for cross-realm authentication before you configure the Kerberos service.
