Help with BESadmin account being locked out

HI,

We have a besadmin account that continues to be locked out weekly.  We have ran a script against the complete domain and there are no services running under that incorrectly.  Any ideas of what other options I have?

Thanks
David

BES communicates with Exchange by using BB agent that uses MAPI sessions.  Each agent uses its own MAPI sessions.  For Authentication BES communicate with NSPI Component to authenticate with AD. There must be some sort of authentication failure happening that might cause the BESadmin account lockout.

Just refer the below microsoft link and follow the resolution instruction to enable the event logging for NSPI connections, and modifiy the registry to allow additional NSPI connections.

Have you checked what machine the lockout is coming from ... If it is your owa box consider renaming the account.

Check the Eventlogs(Security) from the DC, it would show workstation from where the account is getting locked.

You can also download the Account Lockout tools from Microsoft to troubleshoot further

When checking the domain controllers for the lock out in the event log, you will have to check all domain controllers.

Yes, but if it is taking time then you can just check from the Domain Controllers from the local site and then go for other DC's
