Account lockout notification via email


James Green


I was wondering if there is a way in group policies to setup email
notifications to email an admin when a user gets locked out after x number of
incorrect login attempts.

If not could this be done through perfmon.msc by creating an alert??

Hello James,

No policy setting is available for that. Why do you need it? The user will
report to you if she/he is locked out. If you don't like that they lock out,
then you should reconfigure your account lockout policy.
