I have a windows 2003 server sp1 being used as a domain controller.

Under the Default DC Security Settings/Account Policies/Account lockout policy

I have 'account lockout threshold' set to 3 invalid login attempts
and 'account lockout duration' is 30 min.

Yet when there are 3 invalid attemtps the account is not disabled.

Is there another setting somewhere that need attenion for the account
to be disabled on invalid login attemps.

thanks,
David
