How to check what time the AD account was lock out

Hi,

I know that there is a Microsoft Lockout toolkit but it has to be installed on the DC which is out of bounds. Hence is there a alternative to find out what time the particular AD account was locked out and if possible why?

Thanks

accounts that are locked out are either because of bad passwords real quickly, or the account became disabled (expired, or not allowed to log in during this time of day)

both of these can be found in the event logs (start > run > eventvwr > security)
filter the security log for event id 539 to see when it was locked out

you might find more info about why/from where, if you filter for these event id's:
529, 644, 675, 676, 681, 12294

Try enable advance features in A.D MMC and then click user properties to see if you get the required details.

Hello !

You can download this package from Microsoft : http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=7AF2E69C-91F3-4E63-8629-B999ADDE0B9E&displaylang=en

Which contains the utility LockoutStatus.exe and the DLL AcctInfo.dll.

The lockoutstatus utility will give you all the informations you want about, obviously, the lockout status of a user, and the ability to unlock it, reset his password...

Or you can register acctinfo.dll : copy it to C:\Windows\System32 and launch the command "regsvr32 %systemroot%\system32\acctinfo.dll". This will add a tab in the users properties in ADUC that will also give you the information you want.
