Unattended access failed - user credentials invalid
. It's usually more efficient to contact supportatcloudberrylabdotcom
but since it's a somewhat common issue, I'll gladly answer here.
I assume you are trying to connect to a Windows 10 (or Server 2016) machine
One of the latest updates to Windows 10 breaks authentication to a remote host in case some fields about the user are not filled.
There's an article about it (https://lonelycoding.com/system-directoryservices-accountmanagement-principalcontext-broken-after-windows-10-update/
), and this is a quote from it:
The problem is caused by missing registry entries in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion, specifically: RegisteredOwner and RegisteredOrganization the Registry Editor by pressing Windows R and typing regedit.exe . Browse to the location above
Just right click on the CurrentVersion in the Registry Editor and select New > String Value. After you add each entry ( RegisteredOwner and RegisteredOrganization ) edit their values. You can use your username and company name respectively.
Please follow the instructions from the article, it should resolve the issue once and for all. It will suffice if you enter "sdfsdf" or anything similar to both fields.
Let me know whether the issue persists after that or not.
