Cannot Unlock Workstation

By S.M.E. ·
When the user is logged on to an NT workstation the screensaver locks the workstation, and I am unable to unlock the workstation with the User Account nor the Administrator Account. To gain access to the workstation the user has to shutdown the machine and reboot.

This only happens when the user is logged on to the Workstation Only. User is able to unlock workstation when logged on to the network.

Does anyone know why this happens and how to fix it?

In order to log on when not connected to the network you'll need to log on to the Local Administrator account.
You can also add your account,when connected to network, to the local administrator's group.

Already apart of the Local Admin Group. The Local Accounts are the ones that cannot unlock the workstation when the screensaver comes on.

This probably happens because the local user and administrator accounts on the machine don't correspond with the domain accounts of the same name (i.e. different passwords).

To fix it, you'll need to log on with an account that has administrativerights on the desktop and fix the passwords.

I checked to ensure that local and domain passwords were synchronized. Workstation still doesn't unlock.
