  • Event error

    I'm getting the following event id error on my sbs server 2003 R2.

    Event id: 7

    The Security Account Manager failed a KDC request in an unexpected way. The error is in the data field. The account name was [email protected] and lookup type 0x28.

    Suggestions from microsoft are that the user account password needs to be changed. I suspect this is the administrator account ?

    The suggested article
    says to use the following switch

    netdom resetpwd /s:server /ud:domain\User /pd:*

    When i execute the relevant command it says bad username or password.
    However, they are correct. I'm typing it exactly like above, except server is my server, and domain\user is the domain\administrator The rest stays the same.

    Any suggestions ? Or methods to get this error sorted ?

    did this occur around the time of a startup or shutdown ? I see this sometimes on our servers...
    do you have more than one DC ? Is the server referenced in the error a DC ?

    oops.. the rest of my info was wrong.
