Just about the only thing wrong with your setup is the 'default realm' 
in /etc/krb5.conf, it should be in uppercase, but this shouldn't cause 
your problem.

I think you found a slight bug in the script, I will look into trying to 
fix it.

It confirms that nmbd, smbd and winbind are not starting, so do you have 
SSH setup on your Rpi ?

if so, can you open three ssh terminals to the Rpi and run 'sudo smbd 
-D' in one, 'sudo nmbd -D' in the second and 'sudo winbindd -D' in the 
third. If they all start, check if Samba is running on the Rpi, if one 
fails it may point in the direction of the error.

If it does work, it may be a problem with systemd and I know little 
about systemd.
