You usually get a krb5.conf created when you install the kerberos
client packages, it is usually more that what you need though.
You only get the /etc/krb5.keytab created at join if you have these two
lines in smb.conf:

    dedicated keytab file = /etc/krb5.keytab
    kerberos method = secrets and keytab

Have you mapped Administrator to the Unix user 'root' in a user.map ?

Ah, but Samba uses a keytab in memory and whilst I have always created
the krb5.conf myself, it is possible that Samba can use the Realm found
in smb.conf if there is no /etc/krb5.conf.

Please check if you have a user.map and report back.
