Administrator account keeps getting locked out of Windows SBS 2003!

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I have a client that uses the default "Administrator" user account for admin tasks. I have since then created another admin account for my use. In addition the server is the Blackberry server as well, so it also has a Bes admin account. Recently, the "Administrator" user name has been denied access both remote and locally. However when I log in as another admin account and reset the "Administrator" password I am able to log in with the account. After a couple of days (or the next time I check), the "Administrator" account is locked again.  Any ideas? I don't want it to lock all of my admin accounts one day.  Thanks!
