Active Directory changes not updating
Posted on 2011-03-03
We are running Windows Small Business Server 2003 SP2 and a new user that I created in AD can't log on. It looks like my user was created correctly, but AD is not updating something.
When I try and log on I get the message "The system could not log you on. Make sure your User name and domain are correct, then type your password again. Letters in passwords must be typed using the correct case" as if they didn't exist.
I created the new user by copying a user that had been disabled, but I know I unchecked the box during the copy for User is Disabled.
Then I deleted the new user and copied from an existing user that was not disabled and got the same message as if the account didn't exist.
Then I took a user account that was disabled, re-enabled it and set a new password and tried to log in with that, but it says "Your account has been disabled. Please see your system administrator"
Any ideas as to what might be going on?
