Resolving an Active Directory Account that keep getting locked

PROBLEM

An Active Directory account keeps getting locked after repeatedly unlocking the account.

SOLUTION

Normally this is due to the account still being active on a PC or server.

Use the Microsoft Account Lockout Tool to find the Ad Server that the account is being locked on.

Once you've found the server that the account is being locked on open Event Viewer and look and the Security event. Filter the list to Event ID 4740 and then view the event to find the computer that is causing the lock.
