The user name or password is incorrect (1326) (Code: PE026)



hello, I always get the file content sensor following message: Failed Login: The user name or password is incorrect (1326) (Code: PE026). I do not know where I can adapt this? Does anyone know?

Dear spomah,

before going deeper into analysis, please check the device object where the sensor was created. Please manually enter the correct Windows credentials into the device settings tab.

Does the sensor now work?
