"Local user logon failed. Using combination of SYSTEM and Network credentials"


To access shared network resources, a Task requires user credentials that have access to the network. Usually, this is Active Directory user or user of the remote server.

In case when it is not possible to authenticate locally with a specified Run As user, the Task is ran under SYSTEM account, however all network requests are issued with the specified user. This allows multiple Automation Workshop tasks to use different Windows Domain users simultaneously, while machine itself may not even be joined to the Domain.
