We have an App running on blackberry thru BES, MDS which takes AD authentication. However on 2nd bad passwd when entered user AD account gets locked. On desktop, bad passwd lock out set at 3.
Any suggestion why BB authentication acting differently in regards to AD, thanks.

    You'll have to check the DC logs to see why it's getting locked.  Maybe the app has the wrong Password and it keeps trying more than 3 times.

    have you checked the bes IT policy that is being applied to the blackberry in question? it has its own settings regarding lockouts etc.

    Is this a new issue? Did it used to work then stop? If used to work were any SP updates applied to host server OS or BES? Is BES running on a DC or Exchange server?
