  • Locked out Account in SBS2000

    I have one computer that is locked out from the server all the time. I remove the lock from the user profile and login again, the computer is loging in but cannot access the maped drives or the exchange mail box. The computer is XP Pro Spk2 connected to DOMAIN SBS2000. If I login with different user to the same computer , I have no problem accessing resources on the network. The problem is in one profile. I do not want to delete the profile, there is lot of programs installed on this computer that is associated with profile (Licening). Deleting the profile and recreating it means installing all the programs again.

    OK, first of all let's get some terminology straight.

    Is it a USER ACCOUNT or COMPUTER ACCOUNT getting locked out?

    (Assume it's a USER)
    Is the user getting locked out if he logs on at another computer?
    Are there any Group Policies in effect?
    Is the user logged on to ANY OTHER MACHINE?

      So you unlock the account, log in on that computer using that account and the account gets locked out again???

      If so, unmap all the shares and map them again. Maybe the maps were done as a "different user name" where that account and an old password were specified? I have seen that happen in a slightly different context.

      I'm not logged on a domain at the moment but is there a domain analogy to "Manage my network passwords" under Control Panel\User Accounts\Local Account Name? If so, that may also be a place to look.
      Cheers,

        Well, It is a user account in a domain. We unlock the account from the server user profile. The user login to the Domain from only this computer. (it is small office 10 computers). It works fine before, had some problem login into the exchange. We changed the password, and since then the user account started being locked out. We cleared the password again (no password) but the problem remains. We did not activate the lockout policy future, it is disabled. The mapping is done by a login script at the share LOGIN and used by all users with no problem. Login in to the same computer with different users account - no problems - mapping works fine.

          Somewhere that account is accessing the server w/ the old password. A persistent share on this machine or maybe on some of the other machines? Change the password back and the problem goes away?

            Manually disconnect all the shares and then log off/back on. A persistent share will map itself before the login script starts, and the bit of the login script which maps the drive will fail (possibly silently depending on how it's scripted). Disconnecting ALL the drives, before you log back in, will make sure there's a clean slate to start from.

              This one solved my problem.
