Using bind 9.5.0 with Active directory

I need to create a new Windows 2008 domain in a network with an existing
Bind setup.  I know I need dynamic DNS for the Windows domain. I also
know I need GSS support to get secure dynamic updates and this is
supported in Bind 9.5.0. However I can't figure out how to configure
everything properly (how do I generate the gss credentials? what if I
don't have a Kerberos server yet?).  Is there anybody who can point me
to some documentation on how to bootstrap a Windows domain installation
in a bind environment?  I'm not interested in running Bind on Windows, I
can find plenty of info about that but my binds are running just fine on
linux. The main issue is getting secure dynamic updates working.

Thanks in advance,


 With kind regards,
