User login & password

By mydancher ·
Hi all

I like to know whether a MS security patch or Service Pack would ever render every user logins and/or passwords "invalid" on a Win2K or win NT server (standalone)? For instance, the password is set to null/blank after the applying the fix.

Thanks.

Anything is possible. However, I have never experienced that type of behavior.

I would suggest you search the Microsoft Knowledge Base

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=fh;rid;kbinfo
(remove any embedded spaces from the URL)
using your specific operating system and the behavior you experienced as search parameters.

Microsoft did have a bug in one of their security patches a while back if the server used an un-conventional name like server_1 as the name. If possible I would back out of the patch and see if the problem continues. If not I would contact Microsoftand ask them about any bugs in any of their security patches. We have ran into weird stuff like this before and we ended up calling Microsoft and they did not charge us because it was a problem on their end. Good Luck

I wish to acknowledge user "lsnapp@uhhg.org"'s contribution who took the time to respond. Thank you very much. Your answer should have been "accepted" and NOT "rejected". I wish I can set it right but there is no means to do it.
