User Account lockout 3 times day

We currently have a user whose account locks out about three times a day for no reseon.
I used the tool lockoutstatus.exe and can see the account locking out and which domain it is locking out from (we have 3 domains)

When i look at the event logs you can see there was an error which is

Replication warning: The directory is busy. It couldn't update object CN="Hitchen, Paul",OU=Development,OU=IT,OU=Haywards_Heath_Users,OU=Users,OU=EA,DC=int,DC=europ-assistance,DC=co,DC=uk with changes made by directory 7028d468-345e-45a5-9b39-df3e7c01f49b._msdcs.int.europ-assistance.co.uk. Will try again later.

That has now fixed itself but now I dont know why the problem is happening and how to resolve this issue.

Did the user change the password lately? Could an old password be stored somewhere in IE for an intranet site?

There is a command you can run from the Run box.  Control keymgr.dll that will list cached passwords.  Just delete anything that shouldn't be in there.  This usually fixes most of our lockouts.

Data loss can hit a business in any number of ways. In reality, companies should expect to lose data at some point. The challenge is having a plan to recover from such an event.

we have to change the users password 3 times a day on Active Directory. There was this File Replication Problem but it looked like it fixed itslef.
I guess the user account is not replicating the username and password across to all domains so it locks out.
I thought it might be the account is being used as a serivce but I have no idea where to find out where it would be doing this from

I would just recreate the account. That seems quicker.

I tried this and it brings up stored usernames ad passwords box with nothing in it.

Am i suppose to do anything such as adding the username and password in?

Hi Stevepj

No it just tells you if they have a stored password that can overwrite the login.  As previous suggestion, I would recreate the accounts.  Is this a specific user(s) or domain wide?
