(I just added Samba4 to an existing Windows 2003 Active Directory domain 
this morning.  So I'm in a similar situation, but my setup worked 

Were you able to do:

# kinit administrator

- Try it with a wrong password, see if it gives the correct error 
message of "kinit: Preauthentication failed while getting initial 
- Successful kinit outputs nothing

If that test doesn't work, then I'd suspect issues in your 
/etc/krb5.conf file.
