Does anybody know why the Account Name ends with $ in some cases? The Account Name is the computer name followed with $. I have seen it mostly in login events.

For example:

Account For Which Logon Failed:
Security ID: S-1-0-0
Account Name: COMPUTER0001$
Account Domain: DOMAIN_NAME

Any username that ends with $ is a computer account.

Hi, do you know the reason why the computer name is logged as the Account Name instead of the actual user account? Does that mean that this might be caused by a scheduled task or a process started by SYSTEM?

So, does anyone know why computer accounts are generating failed logons on the Domain Controllers yet?
