failure aduits using sim

whenever i run sim I get the following failed audits in my security log every five minutes

Event Type: Failure Audit

Event Source: Security

Event Category: Account Logon

Event ID: 681

Date: 10/16/2005

Time: 1:05:12 PM


Computer: NET1


The logon to account: administrator


from workstation: APP6

failed. The error code was: 3221225578

If I shutdown the SIM process this stops. I believe this maybe due to the Domain Admin password change recently, however I cannot find in sim where the password could have been used. Can someone tell me anywhere you can put a windows username/password to authenticate?

SIM performance has not changed at all. It still monitors and alerts fine, its just killing my event logs.

Hi Jonathan,

Could you please be more specific about which machines security logs the errors are showing up in, and what machines NET1 and APP6 are?

I'm seeing this same error on one of my domain controllers that is a desktop machine. Have you figured out how to get rid of this message?

options/protocol settings/global protocol settings have some username/passwords (WEBM section) if your using them
