I have recently found a user that is being locked out-what seems about every hour.  i used the eventcombs and accountlockout status to determine where and what.
today I found on one of my 2003 servers this user was locked out with a 644 code after getting three of these;
events 675 three times.
Pre-authentication failed:
       User Name:      user1
       User ID:            domain\user1
       Service Name:      krbtgt/domain
       Pre-Authentication Type:      0x2
       Failure Code:      0x18
       Client Address:      127.0.0.1


I have been reading alot of entries about services and scheduled tasks - which there are none at this point for this user.  in addition- I am confused by the "client address" this is comming from.

looking at the event log closed- authentication for this user is being initiated by "stystem".

not sure where to go for this now....suggestions comments.

You can use alockout.dll along with the locoutstatus.exe tool on the user's workstation, which should help  with figuring out what's going on with this specific account.

I used the tools to get to the point I am now- the client address is 127.0.0.1 and this is coming from a server machine that I can not install these tools....
