Logging for failed events shows "an account failed to log on" but for a server

We have recently turned on security event loggging and see failed logon events for the servers name.  How do we resolve this?

 

  • Subject:
    Security ID: S-1-5-20
    Account Name: DC-SERVERNAME-1$
    Account Domain: DOMAIN NAME
    Logon ID: 0x3E4

    Logon Type: 5

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

    Failure Information:
    Failure Reason: An Error occured during Logon.
    Status: 0xC0000022
    Sub Status: 0xC0000022

    Process Information:
    Caller Process ID: 0x4fc
    Caller Process Name: C:\Windows\System32\svchost.exe

    Network Information:
    Workstation Name: -
    Source Network Address: -
    Source Port: -

    Detailed Authentication Information:
    Logon Process: Advapi
    Authentication Package: Negotiate
    Transited Services: -
    Package Name (NTLM only): -
    Key Length: 0

    This event is generated when a logon request fails. It is generated on the computer where access was attempted.

    The Subject fields indicate the account on the local system which requested the logon. This is most commonly a service such as the Server service, or a local process such as Winlogon.exe or Services.exe.

    The Logon Type field indicates the kind of logon that was requested. The most common types are 2 (interactive) and 3 (network).

    The Process Information fields indicate which account and process on the system requested the logon.

    The Network Information fields indicate where a remote logon request originated. Workstation name is not always available and may be left blank in some cases.

    The authentication information fields provide detailed information about this specific logon request.
    - Transited services indicate which intermediate services have participated in this logon request.
    - Package name indicates which sub-protocol was used among the NTLM protocols.
    - Key length indicates the length of the generated session key. This will be 0 if no session key was requested." within the policy "Failed Logon Attempts". The Virtual Machine (Microsoft Corporation) was last accessed by "null" on 2019-10-21 02:22:57.0

  • Logon Type: 5

Looks to be a problematic service startup or logon
