for some reason i am getting this message on the admin account on the domain controllers in ADQuote:unblock account this account is currently locked out of this active directory domain controller
i also noticed that in the user logon name was blank and it was not selected to the domain.
i have done this and have unblocked the account however as soon as i close AD on either or both of my DC’s it comes back again.
i have checked the published citrix app of AD and that shown the admin to be blocked which i took the tick out of but the DC’s still show the administrator as blocked.
if i close down the citrix published AD app it shows account is locked out with the tick
however i can use this account to login to the domains etc
when i unblock the account in AD i get an audit failure in the event viewer (4771)
Edit: This is very strange i have noticed in event viewer that there are many 4771 errors and i have had these since changing the administrator password. i have since not had any problems and that was about a month ago.
i changed the administrator password to what it was already to try and force the kerberos and that has seemed to have fixed the blocked account issue. i had to do it on both of the domain controllers though
however i am still getting the audit failire 4771 (0x18) with the below in it
0x18 Pre-authentication information was invalid Usually means bad password
any idea guys?
sorry i was wrong, it is still locking the admin account?
however if i change the password back to the original (old one) it does not give the audit failure and it does not lock the admin out?
It is only going to be a matter of time before the administrator account becomes locked out because something is not authenticating properly when the password is changed.
i have changed the password again to hopefully force the kerberos to work properly however if it is anything but the old password i get the event 4771 and it is only a matter of time before this admin locked out occurs.
any help greatfully received, sorry for this being all over the place
