Hi,

Have anyone experienced abnormal that user account will automatically
locked within a very short period, about 1 or 2 minutes. Almost all the
user account will locked,
_after_i_unlocked_it,_another_couple_of_minutes,_it_will_loc ked_again_.


-And I noticed this behaviour only occurs about certain of duration,
e.g. after 9pm, the AD is back to normal.-

I did cleaning is there any affected virus, no the results is zero
infected.

Could it be the setting at Active Directory goes somewhere wrong?


Thanks.

p/s: currently i'm using some freeware for automatically unlocked AD.

Is the account logged into more than one machine or is it running a service
on the same machine? A user could have mapped drives to a resource from one
machine, on a different machine he changes his password and then the first
machine attempts to stay mapped to a drive and the password is no longer
correct and eventually locks the user out. Or after a password is changed a
service is running that attempts to authenticate with an old password.

To help try and track down where the account is getting locked out use
eventcombMT.exe from the Account Lockout tools found out Microsoft's
website. Use the built in search AccountLockouts and search in the created
text files for the user in question.

You can also set the debug flag on NetLogon to track authentication. "This
creates a text file on the PDC that can be examined to determine which
clients are generating the bad password attempts."
