Excuse me. I meant to say domain controllers. The client smb.conf is posted below:
        security = ADS
        workgroup = <EXAMPLE>
        realm = <example.com>
        log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
        kerberos method = secrets and keytab
        client signing = yes
        client use spnego = yes
