Active Directory fails with middleware error
I just applied the FreeNAS-11.0-U2 (e417d8aa5) updates to both my filers and now I'm getting a middleware error starting Active Directory.
Boot up the system and login the giu and soon enough you get a yellow warning light warning that Active Directory has restarted more than 10 times. Restart AD by hand by ticking the "Enable" option in the AD config screen and you get this message:
[middleware.exceptions:36] [MiddlewareError: b'Active Directory failed to reload.']
Attached are debug file & syslog messages of AD service start.

You used to have to hard code the kerberos server. That hasn't been necessary for a long time now. If you create a Kerberos realm without specifying the KDC (and everything else), it will be looked up via DNS as necessary (and I'm pretty certain checked if host is up). Can you verify?
