User to never be locked out

Running NT network with 3 domains, user policy is set to 3 tries and you are locked out.  I need to set one particular user to never be locked out, how can I do this without effecting everyone?  Thanks in advance.

Don't think you can, if I remember correctly, password/account policies affect the entire domain... BUT, I could be wrong - check over the policies available for users in a Group Policy object in Active Directory (assuming this is a 2000 or 2003 domain - if NT4, I really don't think it's possible).

I remember that if you set the threshold to 0 disables the lockout policy.

Threshold?  Where would I locate this...the registry?  Where?

I guess Threshold is time of lock duration? It is controlled by the policy anyway.

User Manager/Policies/Account/No account lockout. Use usrmgr.exe in the domain controller if I remember well.

Changing it in user manager/policies/account/no account lockout, changes it for everyone, I just want it for one person.  Thanks though.

Consider scheduling a .bat file that perpetually unlocks the account....
