Kerberos EventID 4
Posted on 2010-09-13
One machine hangs constantly. We have checked hardware, disk space, RAM etc. I would like to rule out a particular possible issue. What I am asking for is to understand HOW to troubleshoot this issue, what the machine references are actually saying (names changed). This error is logged every hour and wondering if this could be causing hang (authentication) ? All DCs are Windows 2008.
The kerberos client received a KRB_AP_ERR_MODIFIED error from the server <machine_name>$. The target name used was <server_name>/<machine_name>.<domain_name>. This indicates that the password used to encrypt the kerberos service ticket is different than that on the target server. Commonly, this is due to identically named machine accounts in the target realm (<domain_name>), and the client realm. Please contact your system administrator.
Thanks to all in advance for help.
