User Cannot Log On to LAN Because of RAS Logon Failures.

When you attempt to log on to your local area network (LAN), you may receive the following error message:

Unable to log you on because your account has been locked out, please contact your administrator.

This error may occur even though you have not previously failed any logon attempts. With the Account Lockout feature enabled in User Manager, unsuccessful attempts to log on to the network through a Remote Access Service (RAS) connection will trigger the lockout. This prevents you from logging on to the LAN. The resolution introduces a new feature called Remote Access Account Lockout Manager (RAALM), which separates the two lockout mechanisms : Q177125
