Kerberos errors and NIC software
A post in the newsgroup today reminds me of something I saw after the application of Service Pack 1 on my server.... I had this insane number of Kerberos errors in the log file of the server, but not on the workstation. So I looked at what was on that workstation that was 'different' than the other workstations and there were three things.....
- Extra NIC helper software over and above the standard NIC software [management software]
- HP printer software that loaded up an apache monitoring web app.
- Outlook BCM [and I don't use BCM] that came from the OEM image
Bottom line I ripped out all three of the software that was unique to this platform and it shut up. Now my strong guess was that it was the NIC management helper software, but it points out that the more I standardize, the easier it is to troubleshoot.
