[Samba] Can SAMBA make a kerberos keytab on Solaris 10?

Thanks for the link. Creating a computer account & keytab on the
Windows side and copying it back to the Solaris works for my other
services (ssh, etc.) but net ads join clobbers the existing account
and creates a new one which no longer matches the keytab. Is there a
way to get samba / net ads join to just use the existing kerberos
setup / keytab and NOT try to create a new account?
