Is the color palette that is changing being reset to Tableau's default
color palette? There's been a bug since v8 on Server that I haven't been
able to replicate where the red/black color palette I'm using resets to
default blue & orange.

yes, yes it is! extra wrinkle, my line chart shows top 10, my bar chart is unlimited. I was using Tableau 20 palette and its seems the line chart was switching itself to Tableau 10.
NOW.... I tried using Tableau 10 for both, and the bar chart is switching itself to tableau 20, which would be the 'automatic' choice.
So I guess I can get around this, kind of, by limiting the bar chart to top 10, or by showing everything in my line chart. But I really don't think I should have to do that...... I'm going to end up with a lack of info, or a 'fallen spaghetti' chart.
ok I've now tried every combination of color palette settings including automatic and set palettes and filter settings for my charts and the problem always persists. This is a classic example of Server not replicating how things look on Desktop, on Desktop there are zero issues with this.
I also tried client vs server side rendering and it doesn't make a difference.
Time to report a bug (again)!
thanks Jonathan, I sent in to support his morning
Tableau public example of the same idea (it works here) https://public.tableau.com/views/colortest_0/Dashboard1?:embed=y&:display_count=yes&:showTabs=y

UPDATE - Tableau have identified that there is an issue with parallel rendering and are working towards a fix. In the meantime, parallel rendering can be turned off but this will have a negative impact on performance. If this issue happens to you please raise it to Tableau and feel free to reference me as likely having the same issue.
To turn off parallel rendering:
- tabadmin stop
- tabadmin set vizqlserver.enable_parallel_dashboards false
- tabadmin config
- tabadmin start
