My active directory account just got locked out. On a whim I unplugged the ethernet cord and turned off the wifi radio switch and I was able to log into my account. I plugged the ethernet back in and then tried to RDP to another computer on the network and got the "your account is locked" message. So I ctrl+alt+del locked my active desktop session again and tried to log in. once again got the "your account is locked" message. Then I unplugged the ethernet cord again and was able to log in to my session.
Is this intended design of active directory?
