Hi Guys,
Ever since we changed the enterprise Administrators password we keep getting this error in our event logs of our Domain controllers. We have a program called LogCaster monitoring these logs and we have started to get flooded with this email and we never did before.
The Event Details are as below:

4/12/2007 9:12:48 AM 644 Success Audit Account Management Security DC1 SYSTEM
User Account Locked Out: Target Account Name: Administrator Target Account ID: add\administrator Caller Machine Name: DC2 Caller User Name: DC1$ Caller Domain: add Caller Logon ID: (0x0,0x3E7)

and.....

4/12/2007 9:12:48 AM 644 Success Audit Account Management Security DC2 SYSTEM
 User Account Locked Out: Target Account Name: administrator Target Account ID: add\administrator Caller Machine Name: DC2 Caller User Name: DC2$ Caller Domain: add Caller Logon ID: (0x0,0x3E7)  

Cheers
Chris
