Please see the attached.

 Yes. It's actually a cluster.  And we store the machine creds in centralized location which each node fetches when it tries communicate with DC.

We have been using the centralized machine creds for some time. But, we see this issue very randomly. Once its seen on a specific cluster, it persists. If windows has issues with handling multiple connections with same name, we should have seen this all the time.
