Why is the search bringing "-" account results for event 4625?

New Member

Hi,

This is the search that we are using for the dashboard and it brings all events with value "-".

index=wineventlog EventCode=4625 host=* Account_Name!=*$  | stats count by Account_Name
| eventstats  sum(count) as Failures by count | table Account_Name, Failures  | sort -Failures

Please advice

Do you see the SID reported in those events?

If so, it may be that you do not have evt_resolve_ad_obj = 1 set on the inputs.conf stanza for the security event log.

This setting will force the Splunk UF to try to resolve the SID to a user account

See this post, where I made a few suggestions on how to address this
