Each night around the same time we see this event on one of our Domain Controllers:
Log=Security
Time=11/1/2008 2:07:09 AM
ID=531
Type=Failure Audit
Cat=Logon/Logoff
Src=Security
Comp=GENESIS
Acct=SYSTEM
Msg=Logon Failure:

        Reason:         Account currently disabled
        User Name:
        Domain:
        Logon Type:     3
        Logon Process:  Authz
        Authentication Package: Kerberos
        Workstation Name:     GENESIS
        Caller User Name:       GENESIS$
        Caller Domain:  NIAID
        Caller Logon ID:        (0x0,0x3E7)
        Caller Process ID:      1044
        Transited Services:     -
        Source Network Address: -
        Source Port:    -

Genesis is the name of our Domain Controller.  I saw some other postings about this saying that it had to do with the "Licensing Server".  Can someone shed some light for me on what a "Licensing Server" is.  I did check the Licensing server settings in Site and Services and it says "Invalid".  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Try to disable Licensing Server service and then check the Eventviewer again.

Was unable to figure out what the true cause.  There is no harm in these errors, they jsut generate noise.  Closing post.
