Could be a service trying to log on with incorrect credentials. Have a look in the eventlog for any other errors.
Be a good idea to run a virus scan just in case.

Title:Event id; 529 MICROSOFT_AUTHENTICATION_PACKAGE_V1_0
Administrator login failed 1027 times between 2000 last nigt and 0400 this morning. We normally get between 6 -12 event 529 evary night

I will reward 1000 points for a solution.
How can we trace the source of this event?
There is nothing in the SonicWall log that suggest a "Brute Force" hack attempt

this could also be a backup job trying to run using the support username
check all the task on the server . check if you see any task runnin at 8 . check the user name user to run the task .

I suspect that it is the backup, but am unable to find an error in the backup log, or windows log (other than security events). The backup takes most of the night. they have an application that backs uo a database as well. Most nights we only get a few errors, but about every 8 - 10 days we get 600 - 1100 events. It is almost certainly an application/backup issue; I would like to track it down, document the cause, and present it to the client, who believes that Hackers are after his system.

no hacker here , what backup do they use ? can you check the user name used for backup
Is the backup running from the same server ? the evet log shows the Workstation name for the network logon , is it the backup server. you should look at that machine , if it is the same server then either it is a service or a net share that was user to earier
try typing the command
net use
if you find any device use
net use /delete
probably someune used the ceredentials to map drive on the network ?

you could also check this from the under management &; shares and  active sesssions
