Account Lockout Policy 2

I have an urgent request. I have a problem where the admin of a domain in which the unity 2.4.6.135 is located has to have the account lockout policy enabled. This is causing the account used for Unity services to become disable. i was aware of this problem but I do not know if there was ever a workaround for having this policy in the domain still enabled yet avoiding lockout. Does anybody have any input into this issue?<br>Best regards,<br>Glen<br><br>

Well you can make a new account for Unity to login with.

Just curious -- what are the doing for their other NT servers? The must have other apps that logging with a domain account.

Re: Account Lockout Policy 2

Thank you for the responses. We ended up creating a local policy and took it out of the global lockout policy and placed the service account therein.

Here's a post on the details for changing the service account (i.e. the account associated with the Unity services that we use to log into Exchange, access the directory etc... with):
