Forwading Connector User Account login fail

Jump to solution

We have ESM 6.0c and a week or so ago, I switched our authentication to Microsoft AD from the built in authentication.  This week I noticed that the account used for the forwarding connector is failing.  Watching the log, it shows the reason of 'Authentication Failed', then Excessive Number of Logons, then the account is disabled and all attempts continue to fail after that.

Since this is a forwarding connector type of account, there is no corresponding AD account.  Do I need one now that I have enabled AD authentication?

Is there a way to get more information about why the Authentication Failed?

Thanks.

Craig

It needs an AD account.  You'll also notice your ESM admin account no longer works.  There may be a way around this, but I haven't taken the time to find one.
