Looks that way to me.  Your realm should include the workgroup name: 



It _might_ work if you don't specify the domain when you kinit ("kinit 
Administrator"), since kerberos will normally look up the default domain, 
or use whatever is configured as default in your krb5.conf, but I suspect 
you will have issues with anything that tries to do automatic ticket
