I'm new to win2k. A user tried remote logon and got locked out. I used Active directory user and computer tried to check the user account properties and hope I can unlock, but I can't. Will appreciate any help.

The user is prob loggen on locally so it would do you no good to look under Admin Tools\AD Users and COmputers. DOes the user have Admin rights? He/she could go into Control Panel\Admin Tools\Computer Mgmt\Local sers and Groups\Users...find their own profile and unlock it from there.

If they don't have Admin rights...you may be in trouble. If you want to change the ACCOUNT LOCKOUT setting. Find GPEDIT.msc in WINNT\SYS32\DLLCACHE and go under Windows Settings\Security Settings\Acoount Policies and increase the # for bad logon attampts. Hope this info helped you! Ho Ho Ho!
