If I remove the create krb5.conf line getent works.

So I figured I would just copy the contents of
/var/lib/samba/lock/smb_krb5/krb5.conf.EXAMPLEAD to /etc/krb5.conf
excluding the "include /etc/krb5.conf" line.  To my surprise when I add
back the "create krb5.conf = no" line to smb.conf getent stop working, even
though /etc/krb5.conf is equal to

I tried what Rownland and Christian suggested for the /etc/krb5.conf file
with no success.  I also commented out the lines in
/etc/krb5.conf.d/crypto-policies. Here is what I currently have, the same
as /var/lib/samba/lock/smb_krb5/krb5.conf.EXAMPLEAD.

        default_realm = AD.EXAMPLE.COM
        default_tgs_enctypes = aes256-cts-hmac-sha1-96
aes128-cts-hmac-sha1-96 RC4-HMAC
        default_tkt_enctypes = aes256-cts-hmac-sha1-96
aes128-cts-hmac-sha1-96 RC4-HMAC
        preferred_enctypes = aes256-cts-hmac-sha1-96
aes128-cts-hmac-sha1-96 RC4-HMAC
        dns_lookup_realm = false
        dns_lookup_kdc = true

        AD.EXAMPLE.COM = {
                kdc =
                kdc =
        EXAMPLEAD = {
                kdc =
                kdc =
