I am not the expert here, but:

A) you are using Samba as a standalone server 'security = user'

B) you also seem to want to use another server for passwords 'password 
server = ldap.skopos.me'

C) Samba tries to use kerberos :

      Enter SKOPOS\ccox's password: cli_session_creds_prepare_krb5: 
Doing kinit for ccox at SKOPOS to access doc_svr2
      kerberos_kinit_password: as ccox at SKOPOS using [MEMORY:cliconnect] 
as ccache and config [(null)]

      And fails:

      Kinit for ccox at SKOPOS to access doc_svr2 failed: Cannot find KDC 
for requested realm

      But then seems to authenticate via kerberos:

      Kinit for ccox at SKOPOS to access doc_svr2 failed: Cannot find KDC 
for requested realm

Do you want to use kerberos ?

If so, change 'security = user' to 'security = ads' and it might work.

Can you also tell us just how you are trying to connect to the Samba 
server, are you using smbclient, a GUI or what ?
