- Octopus Version: 3.11.4
- Operating System: Windows Server 2012 R2
- Running the OctopusDeploy Windows process as a domain service account
As the title says, every 10 minutes or so we are seeing audit failures in the Security event viewer saying that the domain service account we’re using for the OctopusDeploy Windows process has an “Unknown user name or bad password”. There’s nothing wrong with the username or password, since Octopus Deploy is working fine. We’ve run Process Monitor (from sysinternals) and seen some events that correspond with the timing of the audit failures in the Security log. I’ve attached a screenshot from procmon (disregard the red lines - they were used to point out the timestamps to internal staff).
I don’t really know what activeds.tld is, but it sounds like Active Directory is involved here. We’re using Active Directory integration for authenticating users in Octopus.
Can you help shine some light on what this might be? We would really like to get rid of all these audit failures.
