We would like to be able to have an option that regularly checks AD for account lockouts that has the ability to:
1. Reporting given a period of time or real-time.
2. Near real-time access to send an email to a centralized mailbox and / OR location that flags account lockouts AND provides the calling computer (i.e. where the account is seen as locking out / where incurring the lockout.
We had an event log monitor set up that has been decommissioned. Our Team quickly noticed when this tool was no longer available. We are working also to leverage GroupID for Password Expiry Notifications which will hopefully contribute to a decrease in lockouts.
Below are some reference links that discuss in part options to do this.
