root account gets locked automatically.

Hello everyone,
we are facing an issue with the root account which gets locked automatically in many servers.We unlocked the root account in all the servers.Now again gets locked in only one server.When i checked for lasb -R root (bad logins) there is no bad login.I've unlocked the root account via console.But am curious what made it to unlock.Please post your suggestions.

Are your systems Tru64 UNIX? If not, this is posted in the wrong forum.

What, just because Tru64 doesn't have a
"lastb" program? (Or because not even HP-UX
has a "lasb" program?)

And the fact that anyone needs to guess
important information about your environment
might suggest that it would help if your
question included some.

Right or wrong, a Tru64 forum is not the best
way to contact "everyone" (except for very
small values of "everyone").
