locked
All users appear to be locked out of server RRS feed

  • Question

  • So out of the blue yesterday all of my client machines can no longer connect to my Vail server, which up until this point had been working fine. I have a number of users set up, and each one just gets 'incorrect password' if they try to login using Launchpad, and can't connect to network shares on the server either.

     

    I can log into the server as Administrator, and have tried hunting around in Computer Management -> Local Users and Groups for any options which may have become enabled like 'Account Disabled' but cant find anything.

    Change your users passwords in Computer Management (you can change them to
    the same as the current password).
    This is a known issue for this build.

  • Happened to me also and someone told me that the passwords expire after 43(?) days.
    It's after 42 days.  It's part of the default Group Policy used in the underlying OS (Server 2008 R2).  Although unsupported, you can logon to the server desktop and change it to 0 days, at which point the users' access will return to normal.

    Did you try creating a new account on the server, then using that username/password from a client through Launchpad to see if it works?  Also, although I haven't tried this, I could see how you might have problems if your 30-day "evaluation" period is over and you didn't use a key to activate it.

    It's a beta product and it will have bugs.  If you can't handle that, you should stop using it and wait for RTM (instead of using insensitive and border-line offensive terms to refer to the product).

  • Oh i didn't mean it in an offensive way of anger or hatred lol. I just meant it in a playful way, if you take it the wrong way I guess it can't be helped.

  • Dear Kin,

    Do not worry about it too much, you made me laugh by spelling 'retarded' wrong.

  • This seems to be what my problem was, I think I had a slightly different way of fixing it in the group policy, but basically the same.

  • Hi - could you please list the path under group policy to enable me to find the setting that requires changing - many thanks
