Windows 2003 server event logs show "The parameter is incorrect" while running BCAAA and Reporter on the same server
You are seeing events in Windows 2003 server (R2) stating "The parameter is incorrect" while running BCAAA and Reporter
BCAAA and Reporter are installed on the same server and I am seeing the following events in my Windows 2003 R2 server

The above three errors are standard "wrong password" errors created by BCAAA.  Blue Coat recommends running BCAAA and Reporter on different servers.  One of the reasons the BCAAA errors may be occurring when these two services are on the same server is that you are running them on a Windows Primary Domain Controller (PDC).  Blue Coat recommends that you run your Reporter server on a non-domain controller server.
