    This event is generated when a process attempts to log on an account by explicitly specifying that account’s credentials.  This most commonly occurs in batch-type configurations such as scheduled tasks, or when using the RUNAS command.

  • Hello,

    I think this is by design.

    According to the following information, ATA should query the endpoints using the directory service user account.
