Hello,

I'm unable to logon to my Exchange server as myself, however I can log in using another account.......Strange !

Messages in the event logs.

Event Type:      Error

Time:            10:36:36
User:            N/A

Event Type:      Error

Event Category:      None
Event ID:      1043
Date:            29/09/2004

My account isn't disabled as I can logon to other server on the domain with my username & password.

Help ?  Maybe a restart of the server will clear this ?

Thanks
Steve

What client are you using ?
Have you tried OWA ?
If it is an XP machine try to remove all saved password from password manager.

It's when I try to logon to my Exchange 2003 server running Windows 2003.  I'm able to logon to different servers on the domain with my username & password.  For some reason it's saying I've been disabled.  I've never had this problem in the 5-6 months I've been running Exchange 2003.

I can login to OWA no problems.

Very odd.........

Go to Control Panel, Stored User Name and Passwords and clear every-thing out.
Log out from the server and login back again, then try outlook.

Stored username & password are not being used, so it's all blank.  I've just checked........

You running Outlook from the same server ?
Have you tried to use Outlook on another machine to logon to your mail profile.
Try to force replication between DC's.
Try to verify your account enabled on each dc and gc.

im not looking at accessing outlook, just logging onto the exchange server to do some admin

My account looks ok, im logged in at the moment can access my email and can log onto other machines\servers on the domain

I'm sure if Exchange related, I can't even use Remote Desktop to get onto the server.  Brings up the same sd when I literally go to the server and try logging on:

This is your solution !!! 100%
Follow this artcile to contact PSS AND OBTAIN A HOTFIX: http://support.microsoft.com/?id=821929
You also have to implement this registry key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server]
 “IgnoreRegUserConfigErrors"=dword:1

P.S. They won't charge you for that, it's a bug.
