group policy account lock out, when not on network
Posted on 2006-07-10
Interesting problem I'm working with,
I have a few laptops that are all on a 2003 domain environment, Group policy states that account lockout are set to lock a user out after 3 failed logon attempts.
Great! Once on the network, everything is working fine.
Once laptop is off the network and user tries to logon, the policy does not apply, I look in Local Policy and noticed that it is set for 3 failed attempt then lockout.
I’m not sure why it is not working when I try to logon without being on the network.
If you all need me to clarify some more please ask,
Thanks in advance,
