When you are using Software Metering on a Systems Management Server (SMS) 2.0 client that is running Microsoft Windows NT, a user's domain account can become locked out. If the user is logged on to the local computer (not the domain), the Software Metering agent attempts to connect to the Software Metering server by using the local user account. If an account of the same name but with a different password exists in the domain, the domain account can become locked out because of too many invalid logon attempts.
This behavior occurs because the Software Metering client agent connects to the Software Metering server by using the logged-on user's security context.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Systems Management Server version 2.0. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Ensure that users are logged on to the domain and not the local computer.
