This article was previously published under Q327889
If the "Logon Failure Auditing" local policy is in use on a Windows XP-based computer that is a member of a domain, the following entry may be recorded in the Security event log if you log on to the local computer instead of to the domain:
Event Type: Failure Audit
Event Source: Security
Event Category: Logon/Logoff
Event ID: 537 Date: 7/23/2002
Time: 9:17:42 AM
User: NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
Computer: computer name
Reason: An error occurred during logon
User Name: user name
Logon Type: 11
Logon Process: User32
Authentication Package: Negotiate
Workstation Name: computer name
Status code: 0xC00000BB
Substatus code: 0x0
This problem occurs because Winlogon.exe incorrectly tries a cached logon process for the user who is logging on to the local computer.
