Logon failures count increment on HP UX

Hello all,

I'm still trying to figure my way out of this problem...

We're currently running Systems Insight Manager 5.2 with SP2 on a windows 2003 server. We have 2 HP UX 11.31 boxes configured through WEBEM. Every time a schedule task runs on those systems, multiples entries get into the syslog log for every global account set in the protocol settings. Even worse, it tries the root account with a password used on our SLES 10 servers.

Since we implemented an auth_max_tries setting to all accounts in HP UX, the root account gets locked up after some time and we need to unlock it from the console when needed.

Even a system credential set in the protocol settings options won't prevent HP SIM to use the global ones. I looked into the tasks options but cannot find a way to disable the global credentials.

Someone have an idea how I could get passed this problem?
