I decided to post the question again but with more detail.

We have a VoIP program that uses an active directory account called lddpp to authenticate against the DC. Every so often the account gets locked out. I'm trying to track down the source pc that is causing the problem. I think a developer has the program misconfigured.

I have checked the netlogon, the event viewer, and the free tools from Microsoft (lockoutstatus.exe and eventcombmt.exe) and even used a program like NetWrix to try and track the source. They all say the lockout happens on the DC. Which is partly true but the true source isn't the DC it’s someone’s pc.

It's like you RDP from your pc to a DC and try to login using the lddpl account using the wrong password. It will lockup the account and when you use the tools that you have to find the source it will all point to the DC instead of the pc from which you used RDP.

Any help would be great on trying to track the source pc.

U should try to track the objects missing,
that might have been deleted or renamed which is causing the problem.

You can try for an Object recovery tool.
