Domain account keeps getting locked out
Posted on 2012-08-20
I'm a Domain Admin. Last week I had to have a user unlock a server at a remote location that was logged in as me because I wasn't able to access the server. So I changed my domain password to a temporary password, had him unlock the server with this new temp password, then rebooted the server and did not log back in as myself. I then reset my domain account password back to the original that I had used before changing it. That was last Thursday (8/16) and ever since then, my account has been getting locked out several times a day. Happened all weekend long. I know there are services running on some servers that are using my credentials but I assumed that they should be ok since I changed it back to what I was using before.
Any ideas why this might be happening or what could cause this?
