Hi Santosh,

You can do one thing create a new account lockout policy and similar create a OU and place test user in it. After creating policy attach it to OU and then check if it works or not
Then you can check what is missing in the existing one, whether there are some exception or some other issue

in which gpo did you configure the account lockout? where is the gpo linked to? does it apply to your domain controllers?

policy is linked to computer and users OU, default domain policy is not inherited.
Nadav SolomonCommented:
lock out policy should be applied to domain controllers, since they are the ones that lock the user in ad.
I believe when if comes to password policies and lock out polices the default domain & domain controller policies are the only ones you should use and should be applied at the domain and or DC levels
