This can happen if the Windows system has locked the user out eg. for 
getting their password wrong too many times.   I think you may see it if 
you go out of license on the server too but I'm not sure about that 
(never actually managed it).

There's not a lot that CVSNT can do - you need to check on the domain 
controller why it's not letting the user in, as the client gets zero 
information why it's been kicked off the network.... that's only logged 
on the PDC.
