I've discovered that's because CentOS 7 is using gssproxy so apparently your fix won't work. The fix from Red Hat (adding some lines to krb.conf seen in my original email) is not working either.  I'll keep working away at it.   When you're testing as root I guess you use the machine credential? That didn't work for me either.

I wonder if the problem is kerberos ? By this I mean MIT instead of 
Heimdal, the Samba DC will be using Heimdal and the Centos 7 client will 
be using MIT, so whilst the client may understand the lines added to 
krb5.conf, your Samba AD DC might not.

As I said, I do not use NFS, but Louis does, extensively. So I would 
advise listening to him.
