the problem is there is CIFS server which authenticates to AD. one day it was not authenticating to any DC in site

we just hard coded to 1 dc and there was a password mismatch occurred we tried to reset it and it worked

my question is when hard coding to 1 server password mismatch occurred but otherwise it was not giving password mismatch when authenticating to all DC.

Any reason

I presume that as you have referred to a CIFS server, that it is not a Windows server.

Without knowing  what the CIFS server is running suggesting a method that does not require a statically configured domain controller, username, and password, for user authentication.

sounds like AD is not replicating properly . check your replication using
repadmin /replsummary
