Happy Sys Admin Day!

Hopefully all the sys admins out there enjoyed the 17th Sys Admin Appreciation Day! Maybe some folks at work got you some gifts or free coffee and food?

To “celebrate”, I’m providing a link to download Microsoft’s ‘Account Lockout Status’ tool. This nifty little executable can be run on any Windows domain controller to find the status of a specific user account. It provides the number of bad password attempts, the date/time of the last bad attempt, and the date/time that the password was reset for the user. It has definitely proven helpful when starting the adventure in finding out why a user is always locking out from systems. Hopefully you find this helpful!
