The Net Watcher event log may show a duplicate entry for each failed attempt to connect to one of your resources. Each entry shows the exact same Date/Time, Computer, User, Share, Type, Access, Document, and Event.


When the Windows for Workgroups redirector on the client machine receives a message that the attempt to connect failed due to an invalid password, the redirector tries to establish the connection again using your logon password. In this situation, the server sees two logon attempts and logs them both in the Net Watcher event log.
