I have error in my log for a few weeks, I searched a lot but I couldn't found useful answer.

I did closed SQL Server port for public IP, but I have problem yet.

Error: 17806, Severity: 20, State: 14.
SSPI handshake failed with error code 0x8009030c, state 14 while establishing a connection with integrated security; the connection has been closed. Reason: AcceptSecurityContext failed. The Windows error code indicates the cause of failure. The logon attempt failed [CLIENT:]

Time raised: 27 Jan 2015 2:23 PM

It was raised error while this system was off.

1 Answer 1


Any time I have seen this error in my environment (0x8009030c and State 14), it has been because the SQL Server engine account was running with a Domain service account, and that account was locked at the time a Kerberos connection was attempted. The connection would work, but it would be kicked down to NTLM.

Method 1:

  1. Go to register start –> run … Regedit
  2. Go to: HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\LSA
  3. Add a DWORD value called “DisableLoopbackCheck”
  4. Set this value to 1
  5. Rebooted after making this change.

After this registry change was effected.

Method 2. This somehow worked for me: Restarting the sql browser services:

Also, for more info on the related issue, refer to below article:


  • Can i refer this problem to my network admin? is this a network issue or a sql server issue. Is there any other way other then changing the registry ? Can i safely ignore this error ?
