HOWTO perform this to your workstation or servers?
Here's the step by step procedure to run systeminfo for Windows Vista, XP or Servers.
- Click on Start (or Windows icon for Vista), in Run type cmd command. This will open a command prompt.
- In command prompt, type systeminfo hit [enter]. This will start reading your workstation information and display this to you on your screen.
- You may also type "systeminfo > 20090502.KING.NET.txt [enter].

where:
systeminfo is the tool to gather your workstation information
> telling your system to transfer information to
20090502.KING.NET.txt is the name of the text file to store the report.

Now you can read your report using notepad.

You may also install the support tools for Windows Server to run uptime utility.

Leave me your feedback.

Frequent Account Lockout in Active Directory

I have a user in Windows Pro 7, and Windows Server 2003 environment that is frequently account locked out. I tried many different scenarios to resolve this account lockout issue, from resetting his password, changing a new password, remove and re-join the domain, rebooting the workstation and active directory servers.

I tried to use the command prompt utility to run "rundll32.exe keymgrdll, KRShowKeyMgr" (case sensitive) to delete the account in Windows 7 password cache, and still no luck.

Still searching for answer ... Let me know if you encounter a similar issue in Windows Pro 7 and Windows Server 2003.
