$70.00. I have used the demo version and it found the admin id even if it

Subject: Account Lockout!!!
Has anyone stumbled on this kind of situation???
Yesterday, we discovered that all the accounts in the admin group had a
LOCKOUT, such that none of the admins can login to the server.
The affected servers are WinNT4 servers which are in different domains and
also some Win2K standalone servers all are at Olin health center, none of my
servers at Student services are having this problem.
The only account that is not locked is the one that is not on the admin
group - therefore has limited functuinality. Unfortunately the lockout reset
duration on this servers were set to forever (only be unlocked by an admin).
Is there a way of reseting the account to enable us login.
Please HELP HELP HELP!!!
