A security package specific error occurred(1825)

Published on Wednesday, November 17, 2010 in , , ,

A while ago I wanted to view the event log of a server. For this task there is no need to log in using remote desktop. However when I fired up the event log viewer and tried to connect to the NetBIOS name of my server I got the following error:


Using remote desktop I could connect just fine to the server. At least that’s what it looked like. Locally I could open the event log without issues. But I saw events which couldn’t possibly be logged on this server. And then it came clear, there was an IP conflict! To be honest it’s a lab environment so these things can happen occasionally.

The reason this fails is because my client (my administration pc) asks AD for a Kerberos Ticket for server x whilst when connecting I’m actually presenting this Kerberos Ticket to server y. This results in a server receiving a ticket encrypted with a password other than it’s own. Result: the above error.

Thomas, we should have updated the CMDB, Vuylsteke

This error can also occur when the time on your server is incorrect...

In my case it was incorrect time on the machine I was trying to connect to.

Thanks for the feedback! Definately interesting to keep in mind.

Two records on the same DNS address can do this too.

THis can also happen if the password stored in the Credential manager is old/ Remove the credentail and should work.

It also happens When "The trust relationship between this workstation and primary domain failed".

For me, had the wrong IP in my DNS cache. Ye old ipconfig /flushdns, ipconfig /registerdns worked to clear my error.
