Group Policy

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

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

network users and I think they are not typing in the password right. I cannot find the setting that is causing this problem

kcts - I have windows 2008 and I cannot find it in the default policy.

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
