I have some .CN domain names for development. I registered the name through NeedName.com Enom Technology Partner, a USA based registrar. I haven't receive update from them regarding this notice. It is just a matter of time to find out the effect of .CN decision to entrepreneurs who invested in .CN domain names.

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.
