Logon Fails After Password Expires.

By aussiegurneys ·
On an NT Domain the Passwords are set to expire after 20 days. After 20 days the passwords on all (win2kpro and Win98se)expire and all users are required to change their passwords at login (as set in User Manager for Domains)Two win2kpro PC's are fialing to allow the users to log back onto the Domain. If I try to logon useing my own account i am logged on without a problem, but as soon as the two users try to logon to the domain with win2kpro they are denied. I have cleared their passwords on the server and on the local PC. They are able to log onto the domain if they use Win98se PC's. Where to Next!!???

Have you tried recreating the users after deleting them? Some times special characters in user names are a problem.

1. Are they able to log on to other W2KPros on the network? (If so then check local workstation permissions and rights for differences.)

2. Since you can login on the workstations I'm going to assume your account has some administrative rights. Otherwise try another typical domain user account and see if you get the same results.

3. If you haven't already, enable security auditing on the domain controllers to track login success/failures. This may give you more insite on the cause. (Do itfor the workstation too for even better coverage.) Then have the user attempt logins while you view the event log entries.

Just some areas to look at...

Let us know what you find...
