Software status polling and authentication

I am running HP SIM v05.03.01.00 on Windows 2003 server. We started getting the following events in the Security event log on my SIM server:

I have tried figuring out where this is coming from and have found that I can make these events appear when I run the "Software status polling".

I have verified that my global credentials and system credentials are entered correctly. Any other time the SIM Mgmt User is used the domain version is used and there are no security events.

What is SIM trying to do that it would try to access the local SIM server using an account that is defined as a domain user?

Thanks.

Check VCA's Configurations.

VCA will be configured with username & password to connect to VCRM.

you can reset details using "replicate Agent settings task".

Re: Software status polling and authentication

I ended up completely rebuilding the server because there were other issues as well.

Once I got the server rebuilt I split out the monitoring between our Windows servers and our ESX servers since each system type as different credentials. I figured out that the "Daily System Identification" task was causing the issue. It was using the windows credentials for an ESX box and vice versa for the Windows VMs on my ESX box. Once I specified the system credentials for Sign-in, SNMP, and WBEM for each server and ran the task I stopped getting the errors.

Thanks for the help.
