Hi kim,

    I am pretty sure that this user did not log on on to another machine or he did  not change his password recently

>Check to see where else this user is logged on. We've had the problem where a user was left logged on to another pc (with the password protected screen saver on) and when their password was changed this pc still held the old password and since the logged on user was connected to shares the server recognized this to be a bad password and would continually lock the user.

>Hi All,

> Iam having a nagging problem with one of my windows NT users.WE are using nt 4.0 .We generally restrict our users to change their password for every 15 days and not to use previous 4 passwords while changing the password.Even if they try to login in to any machine with wrong password for more than three times He or She will be locked until the Admin unlocks it.
