Denial of Service?

By hainesj ·
Recently we are having users logon to our NT 4.0 network, to get a message of "password not valid", regardless of who signs in. Deleleting the pwl file from Windows does not result in a request for a new password. Servers and print service are denied, but internet access and mail are still available. We find no common links, yet. Our virus files are up to date. Only one of the affected workstations uses Outlook, and none use IE5. We use Netscape 4.6 and above for our e-mail client. We have reloaded windows, tried deleting network services and reinstalling, all with the same result. Any ideas?

Denial of Service?

This may be a silly suggestion, but have you tried "recovering" or changing the users password on the NT server? Check log in restrictions, password expiration and life on the server using User Manager. It sounds like only the server account is locked out--thus no print services available. Good luck to you!

Seemed logical, but we don't use login scripts. I tried deleting the user and reinstall, but no change. The problem is machne specific.
