AD admins may be busy and you may happen to know the ambari admin principal for enabling Kerberos. How would you go about adding a principal for AD with this information and add it to your kerberos keytab? Below is one way to do it. Thanks to @Robert Levas for collaborating with me on this.

1. Create LDIF file ad_user.ldif. (Make sure there are no spaces at the ends of each of these lines)

dn: CN=HTTP/loadbalancerhost,OU=dav,OU=hortonworks,DC=HOST,DC=COM
changetype: add
objectClass: top
objectClass: person
objectClass: organizationalPerson
objectClass: user
distinguishedName: CN=HTTP/loadbalancerhost,OU=dav,OU=hortonworks,DC=HOST,DC=COM
cn: HTTP/loadbalancerhost
userAccountControl: 514
accountExpires: 0
userPrincipalName: HTTP/loadbalancerhost@HOST.COM
servicePrincipalName: HTTP/loadbalancerhost
dn: CN=HTTP/loadbalancerhost,OU=dav,OU=hortonworks,DC=host,DC=com
changetype: modify
replace: unicodePwd
unicodePwd::IgBoAGEAZABvAG8AcABSAG8AYwBrAHMAMQAyADMAIQAiAA==
dn: CN=HTTP/loadbalancerhost,OU=dav,OU=hortonworks,DC=HOST,DC=COM
changetype: modify
replace: userAccountControl
userAccountControl: 66048

Do not have spaces at the ends of the above lines or you will get an error like the following:

ldap_add: No such attribute (16)
      additional info: 00000057: LdapErr: DSID-0C090D8A, comment: Error in attribute conversion operation, data 0, v2580

2. Create unicode Password for the above principal with the password hadoopRocks123!. Replace unicodePWD field in step 1:

[root@host1 ~]# echo -n '"hadoopRocks123!"' | iconv -f UTF8 -t UTF16LE | base64 -w 0
IgBoAGEAZABvAG8AcABSAG8AYwBrAHMAMQAyADMAIQAiAA==

3. Add the account to AD:

[root@host1 ~]# ldapadd -x -H ldaps://sme-2012-ad.support.com:636 -D "test1@host.com" -W -f add_user.ldif
Enter LDAP Password: 
adding new entry "CN=HTTP/loadbalancerhost,OU=dav,OU=hortonworks,DC=HOST,DC=COM"
modifying entry "CN=HTTP/loadbalancerhost,OU=dav,OU=hortonworks,DC=HOST,DC=com"
modifying entry "CN=HTTP/loadbalancerhost,OU=dav,OU=hortonworks,DC=HOST,DC=COM"

4. Test the account with kinit:

[root@host1 ~]# kinit HTTP/loadbalancerhost@HOST.COM
Password for HTTP/loadbalancerhost@HOST.COM: 

[root@host1 ~]# klist
Ticket cache: FILE:/tmp/krb5cc_0
Default principal: HTTP/loadbalancerhost@HOST.COM

Valid starting     Expires            Service principal
02/09/17 19:02:33  02/10/17 19:02:33  krbtgt/HOST.COM@HOST.COM
	renew until 02/09/17 19:02:33

5. Take it one step further if you need to add the principal to a keytab file

[root@host1 ~]# ktutil
ktutil:  add_entry -password -p HTTP/loadbalancerhost@HOST.COM -k 1 -e aes128-cts-hmac-sha1-96
Password for HTTP/loadbalancerhost@HOST.COM:
ktutil:  add_entry -password -p HTTP/loadbalancerhost@HOST.COM -k 1 -e aes256-cts-hmac-sha1-96
Password for HTTP/loadbalancerhost@HOST.COM:
ktutil:  add_entry -password -p HTTP/loadbalancerhost@HOST.COM -k 1 -e arcfour-hmac-md5-exp
Password for HTTP/loadbalancerhost@HOST.COM:
ktutil:  add_entry -password -p HTTP/loadbalancerhost@HOST.COM -k 1 -e des3-cbc-sha1
Password for HTTP/loadbalancerhost@HOST.COM:
ktutil:  add_entry -password -p HTTP/loadbalancerhost@HOST.COM -k 1 -e des-cbc-md5
Password for HTTP/loadbalancerhost@HOST.COM:
ktutil:  write_kt spenego.service.keytab
ktutil:  exit
[root@host1 ~]# klist -ket spenego.service.keytab
Keytab name: FILE:lb.service.keytab
KVNO Timestamp         Principal
---- ----------------- --------------------------------------------------------
   1 01/18/17 03:12:38 HTTP/loadbalancerhost@HOST.COM (aes128-cts-hmac-sha1-96)
   1 01/18/17 03:12:38 HTTP/loadbalancerhost@HOST.COM (aes256-cts-hmac-sha1-96)
   1 01/18/17 03:12:38 HTTP/loadbalancerhost@HOST.COM (arcfour-hmac-exp)
   1 01/18/17 03:12:38 HTTP/loadbalancerhost@HOST.COM (des3-cbc-sha1)
   1 01/18/17 03:12:38 HTTP/loadbalancerhost@HOST.COM (des-cbc-md5)
