After changing an AD password, the AD account is locked out.  All the lock-out messages indicate the logon request is coming from Tableau Server.

The Event Viewer on Tableau Server in the Security events shows Event XXXX indicating that process run-vizportal.exe processed a logon request for the AD account and it failed. Within a minute the AD account locks due to the domain lockout policy. Following are the details from an example Event XXXX:
