Pre-Authentication failures on DC

I have seen these in the event viewer on my DCs for a while and have never been able to figure out the cause. It has never caused any issues that I am aware of but I would like to see if i can figure out what exactly is going on to cause these messages. And hopefully resolve them.

Our domain is still 2003 forest and function level but we have performed the prep for 2008 r2.

Event ID 675
Source Security

Pre-authentication failed:
       User Name:      usrname
       User ID:            domainname\usrname
       Service Name:      krbtgt/domainname
       Pre-Authentication Type:      0x0
       Failure Code:      0x19
       Client Address:      192.168.100.149

These will show up with different users from within our organization but as I said never seen to cause any issues such as lockouts etc.

You are getting this warning due to a AES 128 encryption which is being sent using either Windows Vista/7 or server 2008 member servers. This is a new encryption format that there clients and servers user. 2003 DC's do not support this type of encryption which throws an error in the event log. This event is harmless and can be ignored. If you are looking to surpress this error message you can setup your clients/member servers to use a lower level authentication encryption.

You can distribute the registry key using GPO to your workstations and member servers.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\Kerberos\Parameters
Name: DefaultEncryptionType
Type: REG_DWORD 
Value: 23

Personally I would not bother with this change if you are looking to upgrade your DC's in the near future, as you will want to undo this change to get the highest level of encryption.

You can also check out the link below which provides great detail on this error message and the reasoning for it.
