  • I would suggest that you don't simply turn of the locking policy, but rather, look in your Security logs on the server and see where the failed login attempts are coming from. Once you do this you can then look on that machine and find out which service/application is causing the account lockout. This is the better method to stop this from happening. If you find it is user error locking the accounts, rather than a bad service/application you can then increase your lockout policy or take other steps such as user education to fix the problem.
