Citrix user changes password and sometimes causes thousands of Event ID 4625



We are seeing a pattern. Sometimes, not often, after a user changes their password using Citrix Storefront the domain controllers will start logging thousand and thousands of event id 4625 errors. Our SOC and security team freak out and alert everyone.

We're being asked why this happens. Best I can come up with is something or process.. but there is no correlation. The user doesn't have any permissions issues. I've tried to reproduce this using an account with many open Citrix apps and file shares, then change the user password and no errors are generated. It's random.

Has anyone ever seen this before?

This will be 0 if no session key was requested.
