This utility tries to track the origin of Active Directory bad password attempts and lockout. In large organisations with multiple domains, locating where bad passwords are coming from can be time consuming.

* Search each domain/domain controller for bad password attempts against an account.

* Parse any related events on each domain controller to try and work out where the origin of the lockout came from.

* Analyse each machine it find to try and see what common causes of account lockouts are present, such as:

* Statically Mapped Drives with explicit permissions.
* Old Logon/RDP sessions.
* Scheduled Tasks with stale credentials.
* Service accounts running with stale credentials.

I think we can all agree, troubleshooting random account lockouts can be a major pain.

A user calls the helpdesk, you unlock their account, 5 minutes later they call again with another lockout. At this point, everyone is frustrated and no one knows what the heck is causing the lockouts.

I’ve got good news.

There are account lockout tools that can assist and quickly tracking down the source of the issue.

In this post, I’ll walk you through the exact step by step process I use for tracking down the source of random account lockouts.

There are many Active Directory Tools that can assist with troubleshooting account lockouts, but my favorite is the Microsoft Account Lockout and Management Tool. It’s free, simple, easy to use, and comes bundled with several tools.
