Migrating Virtual Machine

My virtual machine automatically migrated to the available server so it will continue to work without my users noticing any performance issue. That's great technology.

I have now fixed the issue with the faulty server, a simple reboot work just fine because of a memory issue. Now when I try to migrate a virtual machine from host no.2 back to host no.1. I've got his error message about the CD/DVD driver is not accessible. See the captured screen below.

I'm browsing the Internet to find a solution. I will update this post.

Update: June 7, 2012.
I forgot to update this article, so here's the resolution.

It's a simple step.
Right click the VM machine client that you want to migrate, select "Edit Settings", select "CD/DVD drive1", and you will see Device Status on the right side. Un-check Connected and Connect at power on. See captured picture below.

Now try to migrate the VM machine to another host, and you won't see the connected device error.

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.
