Lately, we have been having several issues with Active Directory.

1. User are constantly locking themselves out - I believe I know the answer to this, but I wanted to ask incase someone has experienced something different. Users will log themselves into multiple computers and then forget to log out. At some point they will change their password which means they are now logged into a computer with a bad password. Since Windows attempts to revalidate the logged in account, the system will pass a bad password and eventually lock out the account. So, could it be something else? Am I missing something?

2. Windows 8 and Windows 10 computers will not apply group policy - We have a bunch of Windows 8 and Windows 10 tablets in our environment. For some reason, they will not apply policy from the domain. I honestly have no idea why this is. Our domain level is 2008R2 so I suppose it could be a schema issue?

Thank you!
