Users getting random lockouts in XP ProLocked
I have a small network of 12 workstations and 4 servers. I’m in the process of implementing a Domain Controller to get us out of a workgroup, but in the meantime I’ve run into a problem. After turning on the Account Lockout Policy from LSP settings, users are getting randomly locked out without mistyping their password.
Duration – 30m
Threshold – 3 Attempts
Reset – 30m
The results are not very consistent, sometimes the user will appear on the welcome menu and it will tell you the account is locked, or the user completely disappears and is replaced by the administrator account, which is usually invisible. After going into Computer Management I can unlock the account from user properties, but this is obviously an unwanted burden, running around to different workstations to unlock them 1 or 2 times a day. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this without hindering the security?
