odd users in vsphere.local domain

Hi,

It's been a good while since I checked the list of users in my vsphere.local domain.  Had some that may be legitimate but am not sure:

krbtgt/vsphere.local
K/M
waiter-752d061e-397d-4c44-af03-5f1e7dc3d486

I have never defined any accounts other than administrator.  Any idea what these might be?  I'm on the current release of vSphere.  Also run Veeam.

The waiter account is a member of the CAAdmins group.  The others don't appear in any groups.

Thanks!

Not odd, at all.

These accounts are shell accounts for kerberos authentication, and it's completely normal to see them, if you go looking.

Do not modify them or delete them, unless advised by VMware Support.
