In addition, make sure that "Administrator" is your Domain Admin.  I
used my Domain Admin account (an actual account not Administrator) and
it worked great.  Also a piece of information that seems to be
floating around is that the krb5.conf doesn't need to exist and may
actually cause problems if configured incorrectly.  Samba will get the
Kerberos info from AD if it's configured correctly.
