Good day Sir/Madam

 

At work we are running Windows Server 2003 as our primary domain controller the second domain controller is running on Windows Server 2008. The main problem encountered is the issue of accounts that are locking out randomly on active directory 

 

Can I be assisted in this regard

Chuma,

 

I would point you to the Windows Server space for this question, you'll have a better chance of a response there.

Thanks Matt! I'm moving this discussion to the Windows Server space for greater visibility.

I'd check that the two DCs are replicating successfully, also the tools here may be helpful.
