There are quite a few pieces to put together here.

You want a correct /etc/krb5.conf, /etc/sssd/sssd.conf, /etc/samba/smb.conf,
and it makes sense for you to understand them.

This might be a starting point for the sssd end:


That'll happily use AD SFU attributes, and kerberos integration with AD, with
kerberos tickets being used where they can (samba mounts, ssh, etc.).
