No, the situation is that currently I only have Kerberos server, 
but not ADS. I like to setup Samba server so MS Windows and 
macOS clients (in various IP address) can login to it, but I 
like to use existing Kerberos server as the authentication 

Will this be possible?

Can this be done without the MS Windows and macOS client have 
direct access to the Kerberos server?

Do you know how this works in MS Windows / macOS?
