Availability Group databases create errors on the SQL Server Nodes “login failed for user Domain\MachineName$”. RRS feed

  • Question

  • When a backup runs on a database that is a member of an Availability Group, the SQL Server log gets the error  “login failed for user Domain\MachineName$”.   The error occurs for every node in the cluster except the node that owns the SQL Server role.  The backups complete just fine, however we want to understand why the machine accounts are trying or need to log into the SQL instance.
