I have random users that receive an account lockout.  Have not been able to identify a pattern.  The users all swear that they are not entering the PW wrong.  After account lockout is cleared it may lock again at any time (days or even weeks after).  My System -- Multiple Master WAN, Ethernet 10Mbs, NT 4.0 w/SP3, Exchange, W95 and NT4.0 WS Desktop(problem happens to both), Novell Servers, MS Networking client and MS Novell client.

I had a simular problem once. The users could log on ok, but then all of a sudden, their account were locked. It turned out, that when they changed password in one domain and then accessed network resources in another domain (where they still had their old password), their account became locked due to the network access with different passwords.
Perhaps this can lead you on the way...

I agree with BlackMan. I've seen the same thing happen to a mulit domain environment with the same user accounts exising in two or more domains, but with differnet passwords.
