Hi folks,
We're running 2003 AD server and XP clients. One of the user's account
frequently gets locked out. He has to call help desk often to unlock it and
it would take him 30-40 mins to log back in. Any solutions?
Thanks

Hi,

ALockout.dll on the computer that the user uses, and also
LockoutStatus.exe.

You should also read the two following chapters

"Troubleshooting Account Lockout"
"Account Lockout Tools"

here:

Dear friends,

Its too simple...

Go to Administrative tools-->AD user and computer

Then select the that particular user(Locked user account).

Go to that user Properties.

In the Account tab, un-check the password never expires option.

Thats all.....

Cheers,
