My best guess would be a 'Service Account' or 'Share Connection' that has had the password changed - or the account deleted.
Many administrators will create a Service Account (AV or Exchange, for example) and use it to run specific services on Servers or across the domain.
When doing so, they have to enter the account name and password during configuration.
Even if the account is still valid, if the password was changed you will get this error.
You will get the same error if the account is deleted from the domain.
