Again that looks okay, note the trailing '0' on 'krb5cc_0' this 
indicates the users Unix UID, which is for 'root' and Administrator is 
mapped to 'root'.

This probably means that you do not have the libnss-winbind links and/or 
/etc/nsswitch.conf set up to return AD users (this is not required on a 
DC, only if you want to use the DC as a fileserver).
