I have a user that his AD account is getting locked out constantly. I ran tools to show that it's being caused by a vmware center server.

I have checked for app and checked all services and nothing is pointing to this users account.

I tried using Netwrix lockout account examiner, and it couldn't find the issue.

Any thoughts on how to find what is causing this account to lock out.

It would only get locked out due to bad passwords.

How did you determine that it was vcenter server causing the issue?
Does this user use vcenter vSphere client to monitor a server?
What version of vcenter server?

I checked the dc logs and it says its the vpxd.exe process, also the tool netwrix lockout examiner shows that it's the vcenter server causing it. Not sure if it's something on the server itself or the user trying to connect.

But he cannot find anything local on his laptop that's trying to run or connect.

Is he using update manager or anything else like that?

You can also call VMware support with your license agreement and get help directly from them.
