Vmware Vsphere Events

in Vcenter we have 2 services:
Veeam Backup Catalog Data Service =logon as mydomain\svcVsphere
Veeam Backup service= Logon as mydomain\svcVsphere

In Vsphere client, I can see error icon next to ESX server, and when I go to Task and Events, I see under events: Cannot login mydomai\svcVsphere@10.10.10.20
10.10.10.20 it is an Ip address of a windows server in the network.

I am not sure about the meaning of the error. are the veeamback services unable to login to 10.10.10.20 server ? how can I test that?

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks

Check and trace which server the login request is coming from?

Login to that server and check which function its performing?

Check the username and password and using that combination try manually logging on via vSphere Client and Web Client?

if you are talking about 10.10.10.20, yes I know the server.

<<Login to that server and check which function its performing?>>
I am not sure what you mean by function..

1)Is 10.10.10.20 your Veeam backup server?

2) In the Veeam backup job logs are you seeing any failed backup jobs?

3) When you set up Veeam did you give the AD service account the proper permission in vCenter? http://www.veeam.com/blog/veeam-backup-replication-do-you-have-permission-for-that.html

for some reason the error is gone, a co-worker of mine said that vmware Tech-Support fixed high availability issue and ….I am not sure how relevant it is though….
but the error is gone

Well it's gone, good!

Until it comes back again!

But the error was some user logging in from your Veeam Server!
