Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I was tempted to do the lmgtfy but thought perhaps you might have already searched and made it too specific by not stripping out the numeric portion. By doing the search I linked I did see many hits and that was just on one message. Usually it is best to look for the first message or something very close to it in web searches - the more messages in the error output the more likely later ones are simply symptoms of the earlier one. Once I and a co-worker got into a rather heated discussion because he couldn't understand why I was telling him troubleshooting message 99 instead of message 1 was pointless. The funny thing was when I saw message 1 it suggested an email issue to me and our mail administrator later confirmed that was indeed the problem. Some people who are rather smart sometimes go down blind alleys and you just have to shake your head.
Thank you Mensa.......and I certainly can appreciate that you definitely have to attempt to search by various bits and pieces of your errors. This one, however, is not producing any useful results. All the posts I have found regarding this typically fall into one of two categories:
1. People getting this can't authenticate at all.
2. Their situation is completely different.
I am getting this error every five minutes all day every day and it is skewing the stats on my central logging server and rendering it nearly impossible to sift through for true errors or problems.
When you say "every 5 minutes" do you mean that literally or are you just saying you're getting it very frequently? If the former then it suggests and automated process is running every 5 minutes which perhaps is not properly setup. Have you check cron on this server? Have you tried running tcpdump to analyze traffic to this server to see if perhaps something external is doing this so you can hunt down the owner of that system and *ahem* deal with them?
