Locked Out Server 2003

Posted on 2004-12-01

I do not understand what might be going on here.  Over the past two or three days, I have had end-users call and tell me that they are locked out from logging in.  When I go and look in active Directory, it shows that they are locked out.  I then unlock them and go into the event viewer to see what is going on, and it does not even show them ever trying to log in.

 Any idea of why this might happen?
