As commonly found that if any user login to any computer and with out signout most of the time disconnect it. Due to which after if change of the password user account get locked on that particular computer, that also found by event viewer ID 4047 and in MS Lockout Status tool.
But miraculously it also happened that without login to any computer, it found that the account has get locked on some computer.
Is it happen due to login indirectly by any other application by different port.

Always clear cached creditionals passwords If you have ruled out the bad passwords coming from other workststions/servers.

It can happen due to other things too. Mapping a drive and caching the password, opening Outlook and saving the password…… A lot of times it’s when users don’t

change the password on their devices that they use to access email.
