The CentOS configurations are.... interestingly nasty. These days,
CentOS works reasonably well using "realmd", which configures "sssd"
and a set of sub-daemons, to run LDAP and Kerberos based connections.
If you can set up a *brand new* box, can you use the "realm" command
to join the domain? And can you verify what SELinux is not generating
warnings for anything you've set up?

The CentOS config tools such as authconfig and the "realm" command do
not handle krb5.conf nor sssd.conf well because they really don't
handle the broad variety of available configuration options well, and
require fragile manual editing for even the simplest options. They do
allow very simple, basic setups.
