Logon Errors - Exchange 2003

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

Event ID:      1043
Date:            29/09/2004

Windows cannot access the registry information at C:\Documents and Settings\*****\ntuser.pol. (Logon failure: account currently disabled.)

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.

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

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

Is your exchange a DC ?
How many DC's are there ?

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]
 â€œIgnoreRegUserConfigErrors"=dword:1

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