Where did you get the Samba packages from ?

If they are the default OS packages, then you should stop using them, 
they use MIT kerberos and are experimental.

dns domain MUST be 'sambaad.engr.ucsb.edu'

To be honest, I would just start again, but either with a different OS 
(Debian ?) or find Fedora Samba packages that use Heimdal instead of MIT.
