it's worth noting that 'net ads keytab create' afaics tries to do just
that if the keytab already exists, e.g. it pulls down all spn(s) from
the AD computer object converts those to kerberos principles to adds
them to the keytab if they are not present. AFAICS xisting entries in
the key tab are preserved
