we have an account that is continually getting locked out.  Is there any way we can find out where it is getting locked out from?  I looked in security on the DC and both don't show any failed login attempts...  Any utilities out there that can show incoming authentication attempts?

Ok here is where I would start. Download the Account Lockout tools from microsoft.

Youll want to run the LockoutStatus.exe on the account that is getting the frequent lockouts. This should return the domain controller where the account was locked out and also the time. If you have multiple DC's its possible one of the other ones is locking the account and you cant see it.

Once you have the lockout time and location then you can check the event logs on that domain controller to for failed events.
