Our primary domain controller is Windows Small Business Server 2003. We have a user whose account is frequently getting locked out. When I look in our Domain Controller's event log I see the following two security events occuring every 10 seconds like clockwork:
Event 680, Account Logon.
Logon attempt by: MICROSOFT_AUTHENTICATION_PACKAGE_V1_0
Logon account: USERNAME (of the user that keeps getting locked out)

After enough of these failed logins, apparently the account gets locked out. The process ID above leads me to believe this is somehow related to Exchange (store.exe). Here is what we have tried so far:
-We have completely turned off the user's machine and disconnected it from the network.
-We have had the user sit at the DC console and explicity set their password in active directory.
-The user does not work remotely or use any mobile devices to authenticate to our domain.
-We have restarted the Exchange services on our Domain Controller / Exchange Server
-We have completely rebooted the Domain Controller / Exchange Server.
Network Monitoring is essential to ensure that computer systems and network devices are running. Use PRTG to monitor LANs, servers, websites, applications and devices, bandwidth, virtual environments, remote systems, IoT, and many more. PRTG is easy to set up & use.
