Symptoms

When Content Tracker is installed and enabled as a component, using a custom component that calls CHECK_USER_CREDENTIALS will fail with the following stack:

Unable to check credentials of user. Unable to execute service method 'remoteCredentialsCheck'. (System Error: Runtime error:

As a result, Content Tracker can not be used in environments where custom components invoke the CHECK_USER_CREDENTIALS service.
