We have windows 2008 DC and my users keep on getting locked out. I cannot find the group policy that is causing this problem. How can I disable the locking out of users?

Locked out as you have to unlock their account in AD?  or after 15 minutes or so to autolock the system.  This can be changed in the screen saver setting to require password when resuming windows etc.

Is it random users that are getting locked out.  If that is the case I'd start looking and scanning for malware.  If it is a few users then start here

conficker was a big one that would cause random users to just start locking out on domains.

Thanks

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

Then run an RSoP report for one of the users to see where they are getting the PW policy from.  If they are typing in the password wrong it won't be the fault of the policy...unless you want to turn off complex passwords if they are enabled.

Thanks
