Can't Logon After Changing Password

Hello,

I've got an SBS2003 server with 25 workstations on the network. I changed the administrator password and all of the users' passwords. I can not logon on to three of the workstations with either the administrator username or that workstation's user's username. All the others work fine with the admin username and the user's username. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance for any help.

only thing I can think of is if those hosts can't communicate with the domain server then the host will try to use cached credentials for verification.  Make sure those hosts can communicate with the domain server.

duh, should have said too to try the old password for the admin acct.  if it can't communicate and checking against cached credentials, then the old password should work on those hosts.

Try the old passwords for the domain and local admin accounts.  If they work you may be logging on using cached info: try pinging the server.  Also make sure the time is correct on the problem machines.  You also amy want to try resetting the computer (not user) account passwords.  To do this execute the following from the command-line of the problemed machines:

netdom resetpwd /server:<Server> /userd:<Domain>\<Domain Admin Account> /passwordd:*

Where <Server> = The name of SBS2003 machine
<Domain> = The name of your domain
<Domain Admin Account> = A member of the Domain Admins group

example

netdom resetpwd /server:MyServer /userd:MyDomain\Administrator /passwordd:*
