You get a service principal the standard way (ipa-getkeytab) or use the keytab that is set up when the host joins the realm (ipa-join which creates/updates /etc/krb5.keytab with a host/ principal).

Once you have the principal in a keytab on the system you can point multiple servers/services to use the same file, or you can copy the file to discrete locations as desired/required.
