We've set it up and have no problems. We use a subdomain for our switch, and
that has to be added to the SPNs.
For example, our site is SharePoint, our domain is school.edu, so the SharePoint
site is SharePoint.school.edu. That needs to be registered under the App Pool
default account. The user, when going to SharePoint.school.edu get redirected to
SharePoint.LB.school.edu which then sends the user to the WFE server. So we
also have to enter an SPN for SharePoint.LB.school.edu for the App Pool default
account and that work.
