Issue/Introduction



Is there any direct probe | way to monitor the status of AD service account for locked status?

Environment

UIM 8.51

Resolution

We do not have a dedicated probe for monitoring AD account lockouts. However, you may install a robot on a domain controller and then use the "ntevl" probe to monitor the security event log for account lock outs and alarm as needed. please do be careful and test this in your lab. On extremely busy domain controllers enabling monitoring of the security event log may cause impact on the domain controller.
