    Have each user check to make sure they did not save credentials for a mapped network drive that are no longer valid. control keymgr.dll
    Get account lockout to confirm the source of the authentication requests to the DC that lad to the account lockouts.  Are there external access: email. VPN, RDP, etc that could also explain the lockouts.  Did these two users recently changed their passwords?
    Do they have an active RDP session etc.?
