Active Directory user cannot be authenticated to Sharepoint server

Last Modified: 2012-08-18
Due to some unknown issue, some of my users' account in Active Directory (Windows 2008 R2) were being locked, as a result, they cannot access to Sharepoint site until remove the "lock".  However; while it was being locked, the user can access to Exchange 2010 server as usual, no prompting for user name and password.  Apparently, affecting the Sharepoint only, where should I start to find out the problem?
