Im getting the same error here...... I upgraded virtual center to update 2 a few weeks back i my test lab then went on vacation.... When i came back my password was expired so i changed it and it kept locking i have narrowed it down to the virtual center service locking my ID but not sure where it is storing it yet still looking if anyone knows please share....
I am getting the same problem. VC service is the calling service. Any one found where the VC service is storing this user id and password?
The same thing is happening to me. Could someone solve it?
Thread moved to vCenter Server forum.

Any updates on this folks - we have exactly this issue, have rebooted the VC server and still the same issue.
i've also encountered this problem.
I've tryed to delete the user from the VC permissions tab, and also his profile from the VC server.....
but still no good!
Is there anyone who solved this issue?
I am facing the similar issue, my event log is getting full with Failed login attempt message for a Domain User whose password got changed recently.
Can anyone help me out here, Thanks in advance.
I hate replying back to an old old thread but this came up top via google.
My vCenter 4u1 was set to wait 24 hours before performing a sync with AD. I changed this to two hours and restarted the vCenter service. This seemed to allow people to login again after AD group membership changes.
vCenter Server Settings -> Active Directory -> Enable validation -> validation period.
Hope this helps someone else in the future.
