A Kerberos Error Message was received: on logon session

I’ve found some errors on the event log of a cluster node.
The error said : “A Kerberos Error Message was received” and in the description field was the following: ”on logon session”.

When searching the internet you will probably find many possible causes and solutions. In my case, the following worked.

Solution 1:
The time on the cluster nodes was out-of-sync.
To verify this, execute the following command on all nodes and compare the output:
w32tm /stripchart /computer:timesource1 /dataonly

If there is a difference between the outputs, then execute this command on all nodes to re-synchronize the time:
w32tm /resync /computer:timesource1 /rediscover

Although this solved most errors, it did not solve all.
After some investigation I found that the following solution solved them.

Solution 2:
Set the following registry entry:

Key: HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\Kerberos\Parameters
Registry Value: LogLevel
Value Type: REG_DWORD
Value Data: 0

Note: Changing the value from “1” to “0” will disable the kerberos logging.
