    Failure Audit

    Hi Im a little puzzled as to why this is happening what it is when a certain user tries to logon it says that he is unable to logon and that the account is locked out, i checked event viewer on the server and found a Failure Audit which applied to that certain user here are the details,


    Logon Failure:
    Reason: Unknown user name or bad password
    User Name: [UserName]
    Domain: [Domain]
    Logon Type: 3
    Logon Process: NtLmSsp
    Authentication Package: NTLM
    Workstation Name: [Workstation
    Caller User Name: -
    Caller Domain: -
    Caller Logon ID: -
    Caller Process ID: -
    Transited Services: -
    Source Network Address: [IP Address]
    Source Port: 0

    How do i fix this as its getting to the point where the user cant do any work it just locks him out while he is in the middle of something??
    I will be greatful for any solution ideas.

    thanks in advance

    Hi thanks for the reply i didn't delete the profile in the end, i found that outlook was prompting for the password of the user even though the option wasn't ticked for prompt allays for user name and password, so what i did was change the password for his account and A PRESTO seems to have fixed the problem, Very strange. Thanks Again
