I changed the HowTo a bit, to make it more clear, that the output shown
is from "klist" and not "kinit".

You have to add
dns forwarder = 184.108.40.206
to your smb.conf and restart Samba. Adapt 220.127.116.11 to whatever you host

You can use the IP of any host, that is able to resolve your AD DNS

Yes, you need something that start the service if you want Samba to come
up on reboots. See
