You checked the time offsets?

I think also. 
Run : klist where it stopped working. 
Verify it.

How about, make a "pc" client cert for the VPN. That allows to setup and run the vpn tunnel.
And then re-auth agains samba to update the kerberos ticket. 
Also, in this case it might be usefull to change krb5.conf 
And here you might want add the realm part. 
Because, VPN, routing, splittunneling things like that. 

There a lot of options here, bit hard to tell..

Your welkom, i hope you can use it. 
Have a greet weekend..

P.s. Showing some configs might help a lot. ;-)
