Domain Controller password

Hi, we have 2 domain controllers. We reset the password about a month ago, however everyweek it keeps on going back to the previously set password. I know that no one is doing it manually. Where can i check to see who, how or where it changed

I can't think of anything that would cause this - apart form someone chnaging it manually - set up auditing of account control.

are you referring to the DOmain ADMIN password ?
do you have password history enabled in your domain.. that would be a good thing to have..

password history  - yes - but if the person chnaging this is a domain admin, then tey could just switch it off again.
