Can't Access Member Server After Password Change

If you change your password in a domain controller during a net logon attempt, and then try to use the NET USE command to connect to a member server, you will be refused admission because your new password has not yet been updated.

To work around this problem, issue a NET ACCOUNTS /SYNC command after you log on and change your password, and before you issue the NET USE command. Issuing NET ACCOUNTS /SYNC forces the user accounts system (UAS) to be replicated and consequently updates your password. The replication takes some time--how much depends on the size of the UAS--but it synchronizes your password and restores your access to member servers.
