I see the following errors on all my VM servers that have VMware tools installed
User email@example.com logon attempt into computer '127.0.0.1' failed due to 'Unknown user name or bad password.'
My Adaudith Plus program tells me it comes from the following program
Caller process name is
C: \ Program Files \ VMware \ VMware Tools \ vmtoolsd.exe
Has anyone seen this error
Regards Mogens Westergaard
This event is a Windows event ID that I can see on our Windows domain controllers.
Do I understand your question correctly. We are running on a ESX platform with a lots of VM's
Okay , can you check here?
Is it possible that the VMs were deployed as templates but not sysprepped/quickprepped?
Here is the whole error messages from the local VM machine
I will talk to the Windows team tomorrow
Thank a lot for you feedback

Moderator: Thread moved to the Virtual Machine, Guest OS and VM Tools area.
Having the same issue over here.
The tools are failing to log on as administrator.
Checked thinking the systems may have had different computer SIDs but no.
Any one find a solution here?
The issue was resolved a few days ago
Our service provider has solved the problem
It is a reporting tool that tries to log on
I just need to find out what the product is called
Then I write again
Last word in this case
It was CloudPhysics which gave the problem
The problem is reported to the vendor, to find a solution so the tool does not try to log on to vms.
Thanks for the input
Did you find out what was the issue, I'm having the same issue, but I think it is my backup software, even though my backups are completing fine. Did they correct the issue or give you a fix to apply?
