Updating to iOS 5.0

I'm so excited today hoping to received my iPhone 4S. That excitement shoot down when I find out that Best Buy doesn't have my preordered iPhone 4S 64GB Black model on time.

Instead, I decided to upgrade my iPad to the latest released of iOS 5.0.

My current iOS version is 4.3.1, so I have to upgrade first to 4.3.5, then run the Update.

Upgrading iOS from 4.3.1 to 4.3.5 took a while, more than one hour from running the backup of my entire iPad contents e.g. pictures, video, and apps.

The iOS 5.0 requires iTunes 10.5, so I have to download and install it. It takes 10-15 minutes to updates. And another 30-45 minutes downloading files, depending on your internet speed.

I restarted my MacBook Pro as required by the program, then enjoy iOS 5.0 on my iPad.

Next, my iPhone 3GS upgrading for iOS 5.0.

Update:
My iPhone 3GS is now upgraded to iOS 5.0. One nice feature of iOS 5.0, I can run "Software Update" directly from my iPhone. This feature remove the dependency to my MacBook Pro for next software update.

And, I can use the "iTunes Wi-Fi Sync" to automatically sync with iTunes on my computer when my iPhone is plugged in to power and connected to WiFi. I see there is room for improvement, hopefully with their next release of software update. I can simply sync to my iTunes through Wi-Fi or directly through 4G network. Let's wait and see, only time will tell.

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.
