If you have "trusted domain object not found", this means you don't
really have trust established correctly. Unfortunately, sometimes we
cannot get proper error message back to the user as Samba Python
bindings don't give us much details.

See on 
how to generate proper debug logs for trust to see what is there.

You kvno output is of no use -- obviously AD user would be able to
obtain a ticket to AD DC's service, this is not a surprise.
