User not allow to logon to this computer

By luv2bike2 ·
I have a Windows 2000 system where a user logs in as herself (Dsmith), she has another logon (Djones) that she says she was able to at one point login on that same computer.

However, now when she tries to log into the computer with the Djones logon name she gets "user not allow to logon to this computer". She can logon with Dsmith on that computer; no problem, I can logon with my ID (which has admin rights) with no problem as well.

I can go to different system and logon with Djones with no problems.

I have gone into active directory/computers to see if there are any restrictions on that particular computer and I do not see any.

There must be something that I overlooked. I have searched MS Knowledge base, and several other web sites including this one and I can not find the solution to this problem.

Any help would be grateful!

Have you checked to see if the user is logging on the system or the network? If the local system does not have an account for Djones even though the network does, they will not be able to log on locally. I realize your question is phrased as the system, but I'm suggesting it because later on you mention logging on to a different system as Djones so it seems you are trying to get that account on the network rather than an individual system.

Thank you for your response. The user is trying to logon to the network from that system. On the logon screen the Log On To: has the domain name.

Make sure that the Group Policy Object security setting Security Settings, Local Policies, User Rights, Logon Locally has the default groups Administrators, Enterprise Domain Controllers, and Everyone applied to it.

This is most likely being set by the Default Domain Policy.

look at her account properties for the user account djones in Active Directory users and computers. This is where you specify whether seh can log on everywhere or just a particular computer. Also whether she has a home folder redirect and mapped drives.

Her altrenative account could be locked out, or the account could of expired. check the ad properties of the user as sujested above.

The message that I get when I log on to the users system as Djones is "your account is configured to prevent you from using this computer. Please try another computer."

The message that is from my orginal question "user not allow to logon to this computer". I got from the event viewer.

I searched MS knowledge base for "your account is configured..... " and what I found was "when you try to log on to a console of a remote access server you may receieve an error message that is simular to the following" which is the error message that I got. I am not trying to log on to a console of a remote access server, just to the system and the network.

The resolution is to disable the group policy setting on either the default domain or the domain controller and edit the registry file.

I went to the group policy settings on the domain controller and it was already disable.
I went to the group policy settings on the computer and it is disable as well. so there is no need to edit the registry file.

Any other suggestions?
