administrator account keeps getting logged out from time to time.

We have 2 2003 DC's and 2 2008 DC's which. Every so often the administrator account keeps getting logged out. Not sure what is causing this and cant find anything in the event viewer. Is there anyway that I can find out what keeps  locking out the account??

If the user is logged on in a terminal session, the idle time and session timeout settings may also trigger log off. Please check the "Sessions" tab of the "RDP-Tcp" connection properties dialog to ensure that "Active session limit", "Idle session limit", and action items are configured properly.

This is really becoming a big issue with the account locking out. Does anyone have any other ideas on what I can do about his to stop it?

LOCKing out as opposed to LOGging out...

It sounds as though someone (or an app or a service that has saved old admin credentials) is repeatedly supplying the wrong credentials against the account and thus triggering the account lockout policy.

You could enable account logon failure auditing on your DCs to try and pick up where it is coming from.

JohnGrunwell has posted you a link to an exhaustive thread.
