Admin Account Locking Out

Windows Server 2003Active Directory
20 Comments1 Solution672 ViewsLast Modified:
I noticed last week I kept getting Event ID 1083 and 1955 replication errors

Active Directory could not update the following object with changes received from the domain controller at the following network address because Active Directory was busy processing information.


Active Directory encountered a write conflict when applying replicated changes to the following object.

I changed the password to the Admin Account - Changed all services that run on Admin, changed all ISS website security. I relized to day that the Admin acount is locking out. If I unlock it, it locks right back up with the following errors in the Security Log - Event ID 566, 836 and 837.

How can I figure out what is locking out the admin account?

BTW - Windows 2003, with two ADs and GCs with DNS, DHCP, and Exchange.
