logon failures

logon failures

We create a com+ application proxy within a windows system enabling a linux box to query WMI components.  Unfortunately the guy that first engineered it is no longer around and we are experiencing logon failures despite the fact that everything is working.  We are successfully query wmi components and pulling back NT event messages.  

The com+ application is run in a local user account on the proxy system and credentials are passed through it to access the target machines being queried but it seems as if the proxy first tries to access the end target with the local account that it is running within and then successfully connects with the credentials that are passed through it.

Any ideas on what I need to change to eliminate the logon failure events. I updated COM+ to the latest fixpack on both the proxy and the end target but nothing seems to resolve the issue.  Thanks in advance and I appreciate any assistance!
