Hey all.

Let me give you a quick overview of the situation.  We are in a windows 2000 environment: servers and desktops.  We have an employee who runs queries via an access database to a db2 server offsite maintained by a third party vendor.  

We have noticed that when this employee leaves the office durning the week; someone tries to view that access database and ends up locking the account out to the db2 server with repeated unsuccessful logins.  We think it is someone internally who is doing this and just not confessing to it.  

My question is this:  Is there a way to track a user (inside or outside our domain) who might be accessing the particular access database and locking out the db2 account with their unsuccesful logon attemps?  Is there something internally to Windows 2000 or a 3rd party software that can do this?

Thanks for anyone's help.

You could enable auditing for the access database file.
Select the .mdb, properties, security, advanced, auditing, and add everyone to the list.
Hope this helps.

After you enable auditing, you can see the log in event viewer - security tab.

I would agree with AndresM. This will probably pick out your culprit.
