    Question Disable account

    Hey guys and girls..

    I have just noticed something..
    I had disabled a year 10's account for doing stuff he shouldn't be doing.
    then just earlier i noticed him using the account again??
    What has he done? Can anyone help?

    Can you give some more background on your setup?

    What operating system are you using and where did you disable the account?

    Is it possible that another member of staff enabled it again?

    Cheers.

    Was he actually using his account or a mates?? I know kids quite often 'trade' logins at many schools I've worked in, and there's not a lot you can do about that except a disipline route.

    Ranger, so you're running windows then, is the account now enabled in Active Directory? as maniac says it would be worth finding out if they were logged on as another user account.

    Do you have auditing enabled if not i'd suggest it so you can find out for sure.

    He could have already been logged onto that machine after you disabled him

    Nope, coz as i said recently above, The head teacher gets involved and the student has to go to him, bit like goin to prison or something so i dont think he would have been logged on, because if he was logged on i would of logged him off anyway

    reset his password and then you know for certain he cant get on, you could then try his account yourself to see if you can log on even when disabled, other option reset his password then he has to get it changed each time he wants to use the pc.

    If there is a connection to the server it still should check for changes to the account.

    He might have unplugged the network cable then logged on with a cached logon

    isn't there a setting in group policy that will deny cached logons?
