Hope you can help with this one, At the vCenter Level when i go to tasks and events i can see an account that failing to authenticate see screenshot every 4-6 seconds, I've raised this with vmware support but they were unable to identify the source so just wondered if anyone else had any ideas on how i could find where this is coming from... Also the account that is being used is an admin account that's had its password changed recently hence the error but I'm not sure of the impact on the database or performance if its trying to run every few seconds.
You will get what you want here. VMware KB: vCenter Server Events reports the error: Cannot login DOMAIN\USERNAME@127.0.0.1
Ok, i think i may have found the culprit,
2014-01-06T11:34:55.525Z [05648 info '[SSO]' opID=73a9ca5a] [UserDirectorySso] Authenticate(netservice\powerm, "not shown")
2014-01-06T11:34:55.713Z [05648 error '[SSO]' opID=73a9ca5a] [UserDirectorySso] AcquireToken InvalidCredentialsException: Authentication failed: Authentication failed
2014-01-06T11:34:55.713Z [05648 error 'authvpxdUser' opID=73a9ca5a] Failed to authenticate user <netservice\powerm>
am i right in thinking this is the single sign on service and would we need to re-install this to prevent these authentication errors?
