I have a user that changed his AD password last week, but he is logging in to a Windows 2008 Terminal Server using his old password.  The DC is running on Windows 2012 Server.
How do I get the Terminal Server to update user credentials?

Hello

If this is happening your TS can't "see" a domain controller for some time.
log on on the TS and do ping %logonserver% to have the name of current controller, then check the network connectivity to this controller.
In a perfect network where you declared all IP subnets on AD your TS should talk with the controller in the same site.

see below

ping %logonserver%
Ping request could not find host \\CYPRESS. Please check the name and try again.

I was mistaken on the Version of Windows Server
The terminal Server is Windows Server 2003 (not 2008, like I had reported)
The hotfix recommended by Jeffrey was for 2008

The reason you didn't get a response from ping %logonsever% is due to the cached credentials not being in sync.

There should be errors in your event log which will provide information about what is causing the problem. Please review that to see..

If your still having this problem, add the Domain Controller's IP and computer name to the host file on the terminal server.  Verify the user is changing his Windows login password and not a password for something else.

Also, verify the terminal server is logged into the domain and not logged in on a local account.

Hello

If that's the correct solution you should check closely the DNS on the TS server / domain.

and maybe you will find more :(
