Ah, yes, I should have remembered reading that.
Unfortunately it isn't working for me, yet.

in my test VM

I rm-ed /var/lib/samba/private/*

explicitly set passwd for root again

re-ran classicupgrade

ln -sf /var/lib/samba/private/krb5.conf /etc/krb5.conf

and kinit fails for me:

# kinit  Administrator at my.tld
kinit: Cannot find KDC for realm "my.tld" while getting initial credentials


krb5.conf only contains:

# cat /etc/krb5.conf
	default_realm = MY.TLD
	dns_lookup_realm = false
	dns_lookup_kdc = true


I played around and edited it like:

# cat /etc/krb5.conf
	default_realm = my.tld
	dns_lookup_realm = false
	dns_lookup_kdc = true

my.tld = {
kdc = mypdc
admin_server = mypdc
default_domain = my.tld
kpasswd_server = mypdc

.my.tld = my.tld
my.tld = my.tld


Then I get:

# kinit  Administrator at my.tld
Password for Administrator at my.tld:
kinit: Preauthentication failed while getting initial credentials

same for

# kinit Administrator at MY.TLD

# kinit Administrator
