Looks like your account needs to be in the 'admins' group in order to
access the file.

Acquiring the admin ticket doesn't switch the user ID nor add you to the

Its purpose is authentication. After you have been successfully
recognized by the server, both client and server need to map your
identity while authorizing your access to actual files.

In CIFS there are two types of access control which are applied at the
same time:
- ACLs per file or directory
- POSIX access control based on uid/gid of a process that accesses the
  file or directory

Client-side checks in cifs.ko can be switched off by noperm option. In
this case server side will be doing actual access enforcement, using the
uid/gid mapped on the server side (based on the Kerberos principal),
unless CIFS Unix Extensions were negotiated between cifs.ko and the
server. In the latter case client will pass uid/gid of a client to the
server and server will do the actual check using them instead of
discovering them based on the authentication token.

In case where there is a common identity store in use with Kerberos, it
is often better to use cifs.ko option multiuser which will imply noperm
and server will be doing all the checks.
