Unable to login to a PC with Domain Admin Credentials

We recently changed the password on our Domain Administrator account (Administrator). However, after that, we can no longer login to any PC on the domain with domain\administrator. I can login to the Domain Controller with the credentials and when a user on the domain is prompted for Admin rights to update or install new software, the domain\administrator account credentials work.

I have verified that the trust between the domain and local PC is good. I also looked in Event Viewer on the domain and see the failed attempts for the domain login. I know the password is correct.

Any help will be appreciated.
