hi, one user is getting locked out very frequently but i not able to figure out from which workstations login attempts are happening in security logs. Is there a tool which can help me find out the source of account lockout. I hv tried Alockout tool from microsoft but i need to know the actual source of user.

I hv enabled logon audit -success and failure in AD  but someone failure logs are not getting generated.

Thanks,
Santosh

Just run the below command to enable netlogon debug logging on command prompt.

nltest /dbflag:0x2080ffff

After you restart Net Logon, Net Logon-related activity may be logged to %windir%\debug\netlogon.log

You would be able to see who is trying to access the server.
