Network Account Keeps Locking

Last Modified: 2015-07-13
Good Morning,

I am a domain admin on my network. For some reason my account keeps locking out and we are unable to pinpoint exactly how/where it is being locked out.

Are there any tools/scripts to identify what is locking out my account?

Our Domain Function Level is "Windows Server 2003" and both our domain controllers are "Windows 2008 R2 Datacenter".

Event viewer is not showing enough information to understand where the lockout is happening.

Appreciate any help with this.

Kind Regards,
