In the NT Server 4.0 Resource Kit is a utility Passprop.exe
which is supposed to limit multiple password failures on administrator. I have lauched this product manually and tried several wrong passwords and I never became locked out.
( Please not I made the changes inside of user manager for Domains) I loaded the executable from within Startup and here again it failed to work. What I am tring to do is limited the number of times a person can try multiple passwords on administrator.

The correct syntax is:  PASSPROP /Adminlockout

It has to be issued at the command line.

This will allow the administrator account to be locked out after the number of bad tries set in user policies.  Notice that the account can NOT be locked out of the domain controller.

There is no way to lock the administrator out of the domain controller.  You wouldn't want that!
