Change of Enterprose Administrator Account Password

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
