Failed Logon for user "username" from IP address: x.x.x.x due to user auto-creation failure

Users in certain permission groups are unable to login to epo and this is the error in the audit log.  Failed Logon for user "username" from IP address: x.x.x.x due to user auto-creation failure

Permission sets are set up. Does anyone know what may be the cause for this?

Thank you

Hanoe

Seeing this error as well ... and hunting for solutions.

 

Any update on this 2 year old post?

Re: Failed Logon for user "username" from IP address: x.x.x.x due to user auto-creation fa

FWIW, this issue is intermittent and seems to self resolve after additional tries by the user ... unclear what the root cause is, however.

Here are some possible causes:

1. It failed because auto-creation wasn't enabled.
2. It failed because there are no registered LDAP servers.
3. It failed because there is not at least one mapped permission set.
4. It failed because an incorrect username was specified.
5. It failed because we could not find a group that mapped to any of the user's groups.
