Server 2012 R2 Failed Login

Copper Contributor


I failed logins on a server. That are local.  Started after a user password change.


I do not know what is causing it. I think it is local from Sam6 based on Network info below.


I do not think it is a service,  Process or scheduled task of some type? I have checked.


Any Idea?

 Any way to simplify search

This event is generated when a logon request fails. It is generated on the computer where access was attempted.


The Subject fields indicate the account on the local system which requested the logon. This is most commonly a service such as the Server service, or a local process such as Winlogon.exe or Services.exe.


The Logon Type field indicates the kind of logon that was requested. The most common types are 2 (interactive) and 3 (network).


The Process Information fields indicate which account and process on the system requested the logon.


The Network Information fields indicate where a remote logon request originated. Workstation name is not always available and may be left blank in some cases.


The authentication information fields provide detailed information about this specific logon request.

                - Transited services indicate which intermediate services have participated in this logon request.

                - Package name indicates which sub-protocol was used among the NTLM protocols.

                - Key length indicates the length of the generated session key. This will be 0 if no session key was requested.

Could be a disconnected session from that user on that machine?

Any update ?
