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

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.
