Locked

NT password issue

By calderom ·
I have an exchange server that keeps locking out of its account. I have changed the password and typing the correct one and it is still locking me out. This is an Excange server version 5.5 that crashed a couple of days ago. I brought it back and ever since then it has never been the same. Is something currupt in the sam database? Please conatact me at the following email.

Most likely your problem is that some other service account is using the same account as your exchange server, first thing I would do is turn on security auditing, when your account gets locked out check the event logs it will show the account locked out, open that event and note the machine name, from there go to that machine and check the service accounts to find which service is using he exchange service and either correct the password or change the account
hope this helps

Create a separate account for MS Exchange. This account will not be used for anything other than services. This works 100% of the time.

Be sure that there aren't any users/Administrators locking your account out on purpose.

When you say the the server crashed - did you have to restore from backups? If so, you will need to run ESEUTIL and/or ISINTEG to fully resynchronize the databases. Worst case (and I mean when ALL else fails!!), you will have to delete and recreate the Site Services account, and reset the account and password in all Exhcange services...
