No, it is not possible to determine if it is the username or the password that is wrong.

If using LDAP authentication, check the Empower Configuration Manager LDAP system policy. In the LDAP Domain Manager, Edit button for the selected domain, click on the Test Directory Server Access button to check for a successful connection. If not successful, confirm that the Domain Access Username and Domain Access Password are still working and are not disabled or expired.
