Root Account Lockout

This post was originally published on this site

I keep having my root account locked out.  It is not unlocking after the 900 second time out limit.  I thought it was an issue with my backup software.  I use Veeam Backup and Replication, but I use that for a lot of different client that I support and I am not having this issue anywhere else.  According to the Auth.log the issue seems to be cause by one server, which is an AD, but from random ports.  I have attached the Auth.log.


I am able to unlock the root account and everything works for a shot time then the issue is back.
