Domain Services for Windows (DSfw) is the only component shipping Kerberos in OES2.  The Kerberos version in DSfw is V1.6.3.  This vulnerability affects KDC versions 1.7 and later.

Other components like Novell DNS (from OES) uses Kerberos libraries that are delivered by the DSfw component, so patching DSfw should will always suffice.
