Well these "errors/warnings" were reported even though the command succeeded:

A Kerberos configuration suitable for Samba AD has been generated at /var/lib/samba/private/krb5.conf
Merge the contents of this file with your system krb5.conf or replace it with this one. Do not create a symlink!

I don't know why this warning because the system krb5.conf has the entries in that file they want to be merged.  Maybe the install examined the file in /usr/shar/samba/setup  ??

AND at the very end of a long list of things it did:

ERROR(runtime): uncaught exception - (9601, 'WERR_DNS_ERROR_ZONE_DOES_NOT_EXIST')
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/samba/netcmd/__init__.py", line 177, in _run
    return self.run(*args, **kwargs)
