hello experts
it has been perplex me for a long time, our company wireless network is using domain computer object authentication to connect, it is pushed by GPO.
sometimes a computer can't connect company wireless because authentication failed, tried reset computer account in ADUC but it doesn't help, i have to quit computer from domain then rejoin to fix it, so i think the computer subject must have something changed on client side or AD side which doesn't match anymore, but except wireless connection issue this computer works well under AD environment.
so you could you help investigate what is the culprit for my case?

thank you

The first thing I would check for is a time skew. Check all DCs and these computers to see it their date and time matches within 5 min difference
