The SID is the account that is having the issue.  You can grab the username with a little Powershell.  This link shows you how to do this:  Convert SID to User Name using PowerShell

Here is more of an in depth explanation of the article above:

Don't bother with the Powershell.  Asking "what inference can I draw " is asking what does the info you posted mean.

If you know the user account name, then all you need to do is unlock the account.  Open the "AD Users and Computers" management tool, search for the user account and unlock the account.

There is nothing wrong with the SID that you mentioned.  You asked what is to be done with that message, I told you what it meant.  You did not mention that you had already unlocked the account.

You need to determine where (which computer) this account is being used and for what purpose(s) its being used.  If it is only being used as a login account for a person (not a service) then you figure out what that person is doing to lock out their account so often.

The Powershell commands were to determine the account username by using the SID.

What command(s) return the message:


it gives audit failure : service name: krbtgt\domain name
status : 0x18
ip address as well

When answering, please indicate what commands you are using.  Its helps me help you.

Have a look at the Dcs security event log around the time the lockout happens. if you're lucky it will log more Information right before or after the lockout
