  • User keeps getting locked out.

    I too have the same problem with a particular user. I have tried resetting the password but no avail. I have not look into the event logs but I will next time, if anyone else has any ideas why this happening all be greatly appreciative.

    Re: Computer account disabled

    Problem still occuring please help!! I tried what Mudd suggested. I took the PC off the domain and put it into a work group with a different computer name and restarted the PC. Then I put it back into a domain with a different computer name and the user still gets locked up 5 or 6 times a week. Please if anyone has any suggestions I will really be appreciative.

      Thanks redearl Tomorrow I will test out the lockstatus to see if that would help.




      Blood,


      Yes, the PC is synchronize with the domain. I went to the command prompt on the PC and typed W32tm /Domain and it shows the correct time.
      I remember a while back that the DST changed and in order to update our Microsoft Server 2000 we would need to purchase a patch for this. Of course we did not purchase the patch so we used a third party software. Look at the link below and tell me if I did this correctly. Is there another command prompt I should do to show me exactly what time our servers are running?

        You also are confusing everyone since the thread's title and the OP's question is about "Computer account disabled", and your question is about "One User keeps getting locked out".

        \Rems
        I apologize I interpreted differently then. I thought that mudd question is the same along lines than my question. The user is not inputting the wrong password. He would enter the password once and it gets locked up, So I would have to go into the active directory and uncheck the account disabe. Once again sorry for the hijacking the thread. I'll create a different thread.

              Hi Rems,


              Yes, thank you for the link. As soon as the user come back from his buissness trip I'll try the ALockout.DLL. I'm very excited to see if this will work. Thank you so much!

                I wouldn't get TOO excited. The information you get is muddled and difficult to interpret. Microsoft REALLY haven't got this security thing down pat yet, IMHO.
