[Samba] Active directory authentification with Samba

I went in the Samba settings and went in the security tab.

I selected ADS, added the IP of my AD server and added my Kerberos realm
(found it by running ksetup on my AD server). 

But since I've done that, I can't even access the server.

The message tells me that the server is not accessible or that I might
not have permission. It also mentions that configuration information
can't be read from the domain controller.

What am I missing?

(Yes, I'm trying to read the doc... 943 pages, ugh)

Use security = ADS or security = DOMAIN
