    OK....one of my coworkers is pulling his hair out of his head. Here's the
    problem:

    Sony Vaio laptop with Vista business has a mapped network drive.

    EVERY time he reboots, the network drive is unavailable. I go to our domain
    PDC and I see that his account has been locked. The only I can get the
    mapped drive to work is if I sign on using the domain's Admin account.

    His local account password matches his domain password, and yet he gets
    locked out EVERY time he reboots.

    A real pain in the ass!

    Any help here would be appreciated!
