Computer account error, token-based server access validation failed with an infrastructure error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I see many issues regarding this error referencing user accounts but our error is generated from the computer account, "DOMAIN NAME\COMPUTER NAME$". They are created frequently. The error does not list a database so we are not sure what is going on or what it's trying to do. The computer account in question is a web sever. This is occurring on two separate SQL servers that the web server connects to.

  • The error message often indicates a mismatch between the login in SQL Server and the AD. Dropping and readding the login in SQL Server helps in those cases.

    The error can also occur if the account lacks CONNECT SQL permission or CONNECT permission on the endpoint.
