Hello, Experts

I have Windows 2003 Active Directory, all connected Windows 2000 clients are fine but Windows 98 clients keep getting their accounts locked...?

Any Ideas...?

Thanks

From microsoft:

"Most companies have legacy operating system like - Windows 98, that give them backward compatibility for legacy applications.The default settings of Windows 2003 domains prohibit the logon of these clients, to overcome this limitation, a change of behavior is needed. "

Hello, Yan_west.

The users of the 98 machines log on ok but then get thrown off.  Is your link addressing the solution to this exact problem, i.e.  The 98 machines can already log on ok..?

Thanks
