Exchange 2013


I have a exchange environment. Users use multiple devices to access their emails. Some of then use multiple devices like laptops / iphones /Android devices /TAB etc ...

I have a password policy in place. Now when the users password expires after 30 days and he change his password on his laptop and does not change on rest of his devices then the password gets locked every now and then.

My Question ---

Is there a way in exchange where i can find that particular device (laptop/iphone/TAB) is trying to authenticate and using the wrong password ?
Is any event log generated when a wrong authentication is passed.

The Security Logs on the domain controller will show where an account is locking out on. Active Directory Auditing is NOT enabled by default so you need to enable it before it will show you the correct info.

I have create a HowTo for setting up and configuring Active Directory Auditing. See below.

Also check out Active Directory Auditor by Lepide Software which will collect the logs from the domain controllers (after auditing has been enabled) and illustrate the data in an easy to read Web interface.

The Get-MobileDeviceStatistics cmdlet would maybe be helpful too in this instance, should show devices configured to sync with last success time, etc.

Also check the IIS logs on the server with the CAS role. Search for the username and see if any entries say error.
