Reset Password and lose network access and network drives!!


I have a reset a users' password on the server, they log in fine but lose all network access i.e. they use new log in and cannot get on any network drives or Proxy.

Reset password to old password and all works again, how can this happen??!

Is there a local account by the same name?  Check the logon server the user is using and reset the password there.  See if that solves the problem.  Do you have multiple servers?  Maybe an issue with replication.
Where are the shares located? On the same server?
