OU for Contractor Users is "locked out". How do I undo?
Posted on 2011-02-24
I come into work today and none of the contractors can log in. They get an error their account is locked. So i go into AD users and look at the users and the accounts are NOT locked. However what's strange is I can't modify any of these users. Everything is greyed out and if I even try to reset Password I am told "access is denied". I can't even move the users to a different OU.
Currently we have Top OU-Employee, under that we have OU-Contractor, OU-Baseline, OU- NetworkAdmin, OU-Visitors. The only OU that seems to have it's contents affected is the Contractors. I can't do ANYTHING in the OU, not even create something new or move or copy.
I compared the OU's "Security" and they all look identical.
Ideas on how to give me back access? yes I am my domainAdmin account.
