At this point we don't have means to correct this via IPA CLI. You need
to use ldapmodify directly and add
   krbprincipalname: windows$DOMAIN.COM
   krbcanonicalname: HOST/windows.lan.domain....@domain.com

KrbPrincipalName can have multiple values and if there are more than
one, KrbCanonicalName should be set to the canonical version which is
the original KrbPrincipalName in IPA.
