Every few hours one workstation on our network receives the following error:

The kerberos client received a KRB_AP_ERR_MODIFIED error from the server host/wolffterm01.wolffdomain.local.  This indicates that the password used to encrypt the kerberos service ticket is different than that on the target server. Commonly, this is due to identically named  machine accounts in the target realm (WOLFFDOMAIN.LOCAL), and the client realm.   Please contact your system administrator.

How do I fix this and would this cause a database application to crash?

After digging through the server I discovered that there was a persistent W32Time event id 36 in the logs. I traced that to the w32time service being disabled on the DC. I enabled the service and rebooted the server and workstation for good measure. This corrected the Kerb ticket mismatch.
