Problem with windows server 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • i have about 30 machine connected to windows server 2016 domain with active directory

    some of those machines when i sign in with domain administrator it sign in with recent password

    and some of those machines sign in with domain administrator with last password

    any clue about why that happens and how to fix it and how to prevent it from happening again

  • Did the machines for which you used the recent password (instead of the latest) have network connectivity to the DC at the point in time you logged in?

    Are there multiple DCs in the network?

    Are there multiple network segments for the DCs?  How much time between changing the password on one DC until you tried logging into the machine(s) that used the recent password?

    Did the machines using the recent password eventually require the new password for login?

    There are many things that can cause this.  Without knowing your configuration and timings, it is difficult to propose possible causes.
