Server Connection Failed
I have a pc that needs to connect to the server to retrieve some files everyday. But lately the ID will always get disabled before I can even retrieve the file. I always do the following as below. 1. Run(enter) 2. \Server IP (enter) Once I do step number 2, the ID will automatically be disabled on the server. The Server is not an AD server. The server policy is that has been set is (a) Account Lock out Duration = 15min (b) Account lockout threshold = 3 times (c) Reset account after lockout = 15mins When the ID is disabled, I will just enable back the ID without changing the password. There are 2 users that are facing the same issue. Have you all seen this problem before? If yes, how do you all fix it? Thanks

Software/Hardware used:
Dell Server, Windows 2003 R2 SP 2

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Check the security logs for failed logons. It will give you the IP and username, and the reason code.

If you have the same username on your local PC as well as the server, if they don’t match, it will automatically try to log on to the share with the incorrect password.

Reset the password on your local computer (or AD account) as well as the one on the server to the same password.

    Hi Guys, I kind of found out what happen but I am not sure if it is the correct answer. Thanks to 804TECH for providing me the solution. The user have a login ID which is the same as login to the sever. Example login is fish, pasword is 1234 (local PC), while for server login is fish, password is 5678 (login to server). So after I match back the windows login password and server login password, it works fine and the ID will not be lockout anymore. But can I consider this as Single Sign On (SSO)?
