We run on windows 2012, after changing the domain admin password, I cannot use new password to access virtual host or any  physical windows servers, but the new password worked when I logon to virtual machine.

It just prompt me with error password is incorrect.

Hi,
I cannot use old password, I use to logon to virtual machine now using new password. I tried to access virtual host with new password, it keep says password is incorrect.

Host in the domain and running with cluster for high availability.
