Can you rephrase that?  There are a stack of reasons why accounts continually get locked out, but the more information you give us the easier it will be for us to give you accurate information

we have multiple servers in different states, as you can see on the attached file, user authticates to dansrvdc2 at the moment, but he changed his password from another site authenticating from thodc001, now as you can see on the screen shot his account every few hours gets locked at ADL server and replicates that lock across other servers.
hope i explain my self clearly.

After that search within the log files for the user account that used to be locked. you will get the IP address of the machine that causes the lockout process. Ping -a ( IP address) OR nbtstat -a ( IP address)
