First of all check the DNS pointing on each server, they should point itself or local DNS server as primary and remote DNS server as a secondary.

Once you confirmed the DNS and IP setting run - ipconfig /flushdns & ipconfig /registerdns on each DC.

also restart DNS and Netlogonservice on each dc.

If issue reoccurs try to rest secure cannel as event indicates that the password used to encrypt the kerberos service ticket is different than that on the target server.

Yes, run the provided command on problematic DC, follow the steps which are provided in article.

If you run Netdom on "newly deployed AD" with the correct parameters, the password is changed locally and is simultaneously written on main DC, and replication propagates the change to other domain controllers.

Its case of duplicate SPN, resetting the secure channel will not resolve the issue. Please refer the earlier posted article to get rid of duplicate SPN.
