What is the exact error you are getting?  What happens when you change the password and unlock the account in ADUC?
Shain Allen

there are no errors. it's just that Our passwords never expire. our accounts are locked only when user fails at entering password 10 times.

I'm not sure what the problem is then?

It was working all along. I was just reading the output from net user incorrectly
