Every since upgrading our cores to 8.8 (no SP1 yet) we have noticed that the account being used for pref server is getting locked out. We used to use the same account for both pref server and com+ (domain accounts) and this worked very well until after the upgrade. To isolate what was locking out the account com+ or pref server we now use two seperate accounts. Since the switch the com+ account has been golden and the pref server account is being locked. The locking is very random, can go for several days and then it locks. I have verified that the account name and password are correct for all 30+ package servers. I'm having our directory services people isolate the machine(s) that is doing the locking. The clients have not been upgraded to 8.8 yet (long story....)
Anyone have issues with preferred server locking out the account? This was solid until the 8.8 upgrade. Any ideas? This is a brand new account so nobody has the password or even knows about the account except two people. Something on the client is chumming up the password.
As always - thanks.
