Yes I trimmed you /etc/krb5.conf down to all that is required, I also
removed all the unnecessary lines from your smb.conf, but I also
altered two lines and added two others.

Your set up was putting everything into the '*' domain and nothing into
the 'DOMAIN' domain. You were also using the 'rid' backend for the '*'
domain and you MUST use 'tdb' for this.
