Hey Rory,

What i would do is set up a security policy to audit and log all security
what may be happening (and the event log will show this) is that you have
the login tries and lockout too strict.  I've had a few users with this
problem that when they sometimes left outlook running it would cause logon
errors and 5 tries later their account would get locked out and I would have
to reset it manually..
The best thing to do is find the source of it and estimate the occurance.
Also, to unlock a user, all you have to do is enter active directory >
Username > Properties > Account > then uncheck "Account is locked out"

Hope that helps..

This is not really exchange related, but I have had a real good response
from you guys that I thought I would ask you opinion about this one.
I am running windows 2000, obviously with AD, from time to time my users get
locked out, after I reset there passwords, they get prompted to change there
passwords, the message that the domain is not available comes up.  I resolve
this by re-adding the machine to my domain, this is not an acceptable
resolution, as it is rather time consuming.  I also find that the users
accounts get locked out for no apparent reason.
I would really appreciate some feed back, as I have found nothing on the web
or TechNet.
Thanks in advance
