Account Disabled/Lock out

By RobertD. ·
Recently I have been getting "bumped off" the network. I can see everything, but when I try to save work, or go to another drive - I don't have access. When I check my account on an NT Server, I find my account is disabled/locked out. I have fiveNT4 Servers, and two other Win2000 Servers. I want to resolve the conflict so I don't get lock out of the network permanently. Thanks. Robert

Does this seem to happen after a particular time? Say, when your company?s normal workday is over (i.e.: 5:00pm or so)? If it does, check the Logon Hours settings in the User Man. for Dom. Changes are your logon time has expired and your NT systemis not set to warn you or kick you off, just prevent you from making new connections and using resources after a set time (you can verify this by opening the Policies/Account menu and looking at the checkbox at the "Forcibly disconnect.." at the bottom).

If you have Admin rights, adjust your logon hours as you see fit, but remember, someone adjusted them that way for a reason in the first place (probably to kick everyone off the system to run the network backups).

I believe I know your frustration. Answer #2 is about right on all the rest that I read are not what you are talking about right? If you have drives on other boxs mapped on your workstation and your login on the other boxs is different than the one on your machine then when you log on to your box OS tries to automatically log on to mapped drives. Wrong password hammers at login and gets account locked out. Change all accounts to have same login and password usually solves this problem. Sure way out is to not have mapping connect automatically upon login. There is a check box for this when setting up the map.
