How I am supposed to configure Kerberos on OS X 10.8 ? I heard that this should work by default, just by calling kinit once.

Still, I am on the corporate network (not joined any domain) and run kinit.

All, I got was kinit: krb5_get_init_creds: unable to reach any KDC in realm LOCAL

Note: I do want to make it work without having to join the Windows domain.

/var/log/opendirectory.log shows:
