[Samba] Urgent... winbind and keytab file creation

I'm running winbind (3.0.28a) on SLES9 with heimdal Kerberos. Everything works fine so far. Now i need to have the host keytab generated by winbind to be in the default /etc/krb5/krb5.keytab in order to use nfs with kerberos security. The problem is i have set the parameter in smb.conf:

use kerberos keytabe = true

and as mentioned in man smb.conf i have set in krb5.conf

default_keytab_name = FILE:/etc/krb5/krb5.keytab

after a "net join ads" the krb5.keytab file is not created? do i have to create it myself? Is this not really implemented? What am I doing wrong?

Help would be really apreciated.

Thanks and Regards,
