SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You enable the following audit policies in a domain:
    • Audit account logon events
    • Audit logon events
  • You join a computer that is running Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 to the domain.
  • You log on to the computer by using a local user account.
  • You refresh the history of a scheduled task in Task Scheduler on the computer.
In this scenario, the following two security events are incorrectly logged in the Security log on a domain controller:

Log Name: Security
Source: Microsoft-Windows-Security-Auditing
Date: <date & time>
Event ID: 4625
Task Category: Logon
Level: Information
Keywords: Audit Failure
User: N/A
Computer: <computer name>
Description:
An account failed to log on.
Subject:
Security ID: NULL SID
Account Name: -
Account Domain: -
Logon ID: 0x0
Logon Type: 3
Account For Which Logon Failed:
Security ID: NULL SID
Account Name: <account name>
Account Domain: <domain name>
Failure Information:
Failure Reason: Unknown user name or bad password.
Status: 0xc000006d
Sub Status: 0xc000006a


Log Name: Security
Source: Microsoft-Windows-Security-Auditing
Date: <date & time>
Event ID: 4776
Task Category: Credential Validation
Level: Information
Keywords: Audit Failure
User: N/A
Computer: <computer name>
Description:
The domain controller attempted to validate the credentials for an account.
Authentication Package: MICROSOFT_AUTHENTICATION_PACKAGE_V1_0
Logon Account: <account name>
Source Workstation: <name>
Error Code: 0xc000006a


NoteIf a domain user has the same name as the local user account, the domain user account is locked if the local user account refreshes the history of a scheduled task many times.

CAUSE

When a local user account is used to refresh the Task Scheduler history on the computer that joined the domain, Task Scheduler incorrectly tries to bind to a domain controller.

Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 file information notes
Important Windows Vista hotfixes and Windows Server 2008 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, only "Windows Vista" is listed on the Hotfix Request page. To request the hotfix package that applies to one or both operating systems, select the hotfix that is listed under "Windows Vista" on the page. Always refer to the "Applies To" section in articles to determine the actual operating system that each hotfix applies to.
  • The files that apply to a specific product, SR_Level (RTM, SPn), and service branch (LDR, GDR) can be identified by examining the file version numbers as shown in the following table.

    6.0.600 2 . 22xxxWindows Vista and Windows Server 2008SP2LDR
  • Service Pack 1 is integrated into the release version of Windows Server 2008. Therefore, RTM milestone files apply only to Windows Vista. RTM milestone files have a 6.0.0000.xxxxx version number.
  • The MANIFEST files (.manifest) and the MUM files (.mum) that are installed for each environment are listed separately in the "Additional file information for Windows Server 2008 and for Windows Vista" section. MUM files and MANIFEST files, and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are extremely important to maintain the state of the updated components. The security catalog files, for which the attributes are not listed, are signed with a Microsoft digital signature.
