Hi all,
We currently run a batch file each morning to check if important domain monitoring accounts are locked, there are 4 accounts. Batch example is:

net user user1 /domain | FIND /I "account active"
net user user2 /domain | FIND /I "account active"
net user user3 /domain | FIND /I "account active"
net user  user4 /domain | FIND /I "account active"

If any of the accounts are locked we trpe in from the command lind: c:\>user1.bat
User1.bat is simply: Net user user1 /DOMAIN /active:YES

I was wondering whether there was a way of combining the two where-by if on teh first batch file an account is locked it will unlock it, if you know what i mean?

Thanks as always.

You can simple use only NET USER1 /DOMAIN /active:YES script it doesn't meter if it is active or not. Or do you log it somewhere?

NET USER1 /DOMAIN /active:YES
NET USER2 /DOMAIN /active:YES
NET USER3 /DOMAIN /active:YES
NET USER4 /DOMAIN /active:YES
