Account Getting Locked Out

I am Supporting A Windows 2000, Active Directory Environment, running Exchange 2000, and SQL Server. I have one Developer who is getting his account locked out several time a day. There is no Security Failure in the Event Viewer. I have checked all Services, and he is not using his id as the login. How can I track down the cause of this problem?

You've enabled failure logging in the local security policy?

I'd suspect he has a network neighborhood shortcut with bad authentication info.
Try deleting all his shortcuts and mapped drives and start over.

I have enabled Failure logging, and disconnected mapped drives.
I will remove shorcuts and test
Perhaps you could try ensuring that his password is up to date.  or on "password never exprires"

Your suggestions were good, but the problem was tracked down to a Legacy IIS Application running on the Client. The developer had put his network id in the code.
