Locked

Wrong password

By mercadg ·
I'm having a very interesting problem. We have two IP ranges connected through a Cisco router. For some reason the folks on one side can't logon to the domain in the other side(By the way I only have servers on one side of the network, and it was working okay). It says that the password is incorrect or the user has been lock. But neither is the case since I use there user in the network side in which the server is and they don't have any problem with their password. What make it more interesting is that if I put a name that doesn't exists in the domain it will tell me so. The problem seems to be with the password and it's only for NT. For Netware servers they can log without any problem. Any ideas????

Sounds like a names resolution problem. Do you have a DNS and WINS server on the network? Are all clients configured with the proper WINS and DNS addresses. When you go through a router you'll have to have some kind of name resolution so the clients know where to look for the server. This can be acomplished with DNS and WINS or Hosts and LMHosts files. The reason you can get to the Netware servers is fairly simple Netware (I'm Assuming 4.x) uses IPX these servers will send out broadcasts to look for clients.

Hope that helps....

Do you have one or more BDC's running, and are they synchronized? I have seen situations where one box was validating against a BDC which had not updated in a while, and the user had been locked out on that BDC, but not on the PDC.

Go into ServerManager and force a synchronization.

Good luck.
