I am trying to find something to troubleshoot an excessive increase in account lockouts. I tried installing altools.exe but apparently it idoes not run on 64 bit windows. I was wondering if there is another solution? I am running Active Directory on a 64 bit Windows platform with 2 DCs.

    we have used ALockout.dll
     This tool creates a log file that can help you diagnose the cause of account lockout problems. and copy them the computer experiencing the lockout problems (usually a user's workstation). Copy ALockout.dll to the System32 directory and double-click on Appinit.reg to register the DLL. Then restart the machine and when the lockout problem happens again you can view the log file %WinDir%\debug\ALockout.txt to troubleshoot.
