Re: login-1.10-10 : throwing error in eventviewer

Hi Corinna,

   Thanks for answering.

We understand error message is coming because of Windows security
restrictions, But login is successful using 'login -p tioadmin' only
its throwing error message in event viewer in one of our customer
environment.It also not impacting any functionality.

For all other environment, we are just getting information message :
The description for Event ID ( 0 ) in Source ( login ) cannot be
found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry
information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote
computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this
description; see Help and Support for details. The following
information is part of the event: login: ROOT LOGIN ON console.

So, We are trying to understand what causing below mentioned error
message to populate in our customer environment and if there is any
other way to remove it without using sshd services.
Error message :unable?to?obtain?user?info?for?tioadmin?(tried?domain
