    The lockout symbol is a little different and hard to see in Windows Server 2008 Windows 7 administrator tools. It is a small arrow heading downside like a shortcut symbol. May you not have seen it?

    Then you can crank up your music and you won't hear users complaining anymore?

    djs6197: If you have more than one domain controller, connect to each one individually by going to the Action menu in Active Directory Users and Computers and selecting Connect to Domain Controller.  Verify that they all show the same status for the user.  If not then you may have an AD replication problem.

    Verify AD replication:

    1. Microsoft IT Environment Health Scanner.  You can download from

    2. Verify AD replication with repadmin: REPADMIN /REPLSUM /BYSRC /BYDEST /SORT:DELTA

    3. Verify Active Directory health with DCDIAG.  Command is DCDIAG.EXE /e /test:frssysvol
