Just on the afs/pitt.edu princ. It is also advisable to turn off the PAC
for that principal if you haven't already (though that doesn't have
anything to do with the current error). That is, turn this on:

Not sure on this one. I would guess "no", but I've never done this in
that order.

You can do this, but either way the afs/pitt.edu princ is the only one
that has DES enabled. But yeah, if you just want to be able to turn off
the "enable DES" checkbox in AD to be able to show someone that you're
mostly not running with DES, that's an option.
