Message: NLB Cluster %2 %1: Remote control request rejected from %3 due to an incorrect password. %4
   
Explanation

This event is logged when remote control is enabled on this server and a remote control request was received for the cluster. However, the remote control password received is not correct. A legitimate user might have accidentally entered the wrong password, or someone else might have tried to guess the password.

   
User Action

The source IP address of the remote control request is provided in the message. Use this information to determine the computer from which the remote control command was issued. This might help identify who issued the remote control command.

Warning: The Network Load Balancing (NLB) remote control option presents many security risks, including the possibility of data tampering, denial of service, and information disclosure. It is strongly recommended that you do not enable remote control, and that you instead use NLB Manager or other remote management tools such as Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI).
