The following event may be logged daily on a Windows 2000-based server with Terminal Services and auditing for successful account management enabled:
Source: Security Category: Account Management Type: Success Event ID: 627 User: NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM Description: Change Password Attempt: Target Account Name: TsInternetUser Target Domain: DOMAIN Target Account ID: MACHINE\TsInternetUser Caller User Name: MACHINE$ Caller Domain: DOMAIN Caller Logon ID: (0x0,0x3E7) Privileges: -
The TsInternetUser account is used by the Terminal Services Internet Connector License. When Internet Connector Licensing is enabled, a Windows 2000-based server accepts 200 anonymous-only connections. Terminal Services clients are not prompted with a logon dialog box; they are logged on automatically with the TsInternetUser account. The success audit listed above is generated daily as the system changes the password used by the TsInternetUser account for security purposes. This is expected behavior on a server with Terminal Services Internet Connector Licensing enabled. Currently, this event is logged when Internet Connector Licensing is not enabled.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
