Is there a way that I can make it so that one Server 2003 Active Directory account will never lock out?

Is there a way that I can make it so that one Server 2003 Active Directory account will never lock out?

I need this Active Directory account (and only this single Active Directory account0--none of the other accounts) to never lock out at any time; no matter how many times the passwords are entered incorrectly.

Not natively, only one PW policy per domain.  You can use 3rd party tools for additional PW policies

Yes, but it is the only one,...and you can't do anything about it one way or the other.  It is like the others said,...you have to use third party products or move up to a 2008 Domain.
