This can be unlocked only by the Domain Admins.

Try this as well to find from were the account is getting locked.

The account lockout statsu is the best tool in finding out on whic server the account was first locked out...
if u have many sites and each site has a domain controller.

It will also give u the current password status. fr

From here u can unlock the any user account.... In our organisation, we use this tool to find out from which server the account is getting locked out and from there and we will log ont the server and cehck the security logs about the machine that is giving false password and its ip address....

This is the best free tool fom microsoft
