Hi All
Is there way to enable logs or ways to find what process or service is causing lockout issue
Tried with ADInsight but it’s not capturing and Allockout.dll file doesn’t support on windows servers 2008.
We have a service account which is sending auth failure with event ID 4776 to DC and error code tells us that “no such user account exists”

might be useful, even though I wrote it more than a decade ago.

Thanks Brian
Net logon has been enabled but not seeing any hits because service account is not getting locked out but we are getting audit failure logs in DC with event id 4776.
So looking for any tool that might capture what process or service is causing audit failure logs.

Try looking for those events on the PDC. That may help.

Generally, this is caused by:

A service / application which is running under this account with a wrong password
virus, schedule task,
Brute force or dictionary attack, etc.. Get in detailed here about common root cause of account lockout: https://www.lepide.com/blog/what-are-the-common-root-causes-of-account-lockouts-and-do-i-resolve-them/

Have you tried clearing out any cached credentials on that PC?
