  • guest account lockout


    Back again to you, gurus, in hope that you will help me, please.
    We have w2k domain with guest account enabled and actually, heavily used for external access to certain applications.
    Few days ago users started to experience lost of conectivity when working with this applications. took us a while to nail this down to one particular error: when user trying to connect to the server with guest account, they get error "The referenced account is currently locked out and may not be logged on to". Surely enough - in AD this account shown as locked out indeed.

    Now: account has blank password, so when trying to unlock, we can't due to password doesn't meet complexity req. according to the domain policy.
    having run LockoutStatus - it says this account "not locked (autounlocked)" But users still can't access application.
    have you got any ideas where to check else?

    Thanks a lot in advance.

    Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it
