wel i suggest, restore your backup.. ;-) 

or add kadmin/changepw to the new krbtgt user.

samba-tool spn list krbtgt 

User CN=krbtgt,CN=Users,...  


I don't know the samba-tool line, so thats for you to find. 
you can do this also from windows AD tool but you need to set View-Advanced first, 
after that you will see the krbtgt users in the Users OU.
