You can get the keytab created during the join by adding:

    dedicated keytab file = /etc/krb5.keytab
    kerberos method = secrets and keytab

To smb.conf before the join, not sure about the UPN though, never tried

It sounds like you are running Samba as a Unix domain member, any
chance of seeing the (sanitized) smb.conf ? Also what is the AD DC ?

Not sure why you want to disable YP, squid is known to work with the
default Samba
