This morning I disabled a user.

I pass by his office later today... he's at his desk working like there was no problems.

I look at his account and it's really disabled... hmmmm...

Did a test... I asked a collegue to disable my account while I'm logged in... GUESS WHAT ?!?!?! I STILL HAVE FULL ACCESS EVERYWHERE ?!?!?!?! And I can even send emails without troubles... Is it normal... am I missing a point somewhere here ?!?! User still logged in... ok no problem... but still have full access on the network ???

What the hell is Microsoft thinking ?!?!  It's been 15 minutes now that my account has been disabled... and I still can browse the network...

It's not a question of Replication I did check on both of my DCs and my account IS disabled...

Help me here... I need to understand the logic behind that...

I suspect the account will remain valid until the user logs off or his Kerberos token expires.

Hi psytor,

The user will still be able to work if you don't disable the account on the DC that he's authenticating to.

If the user is still actively working and you disabled the account, then you can just right-click the user account as reset the password. This will force the user to logoff.


Hope this helps.

Cheers.

Hi JoWickerman,

Thanks for your quick reply.

The account was disabled on all DCs. (I confirmed)

And I was still able to access all the ressources... Network drive my email...

For sure once I logged off nothing was accessible... but I mean. This is totally ridiculous from Microsoft isn't it ?!?

Thanks for the hint with the password change tho
