Frequent Locked Out issue with <SID>ADM


Hi Experts,

One of our BW production server is getting frequent event logs about the <SID>ADM logon failure and id gets locked out in time range of 2-10 minutes. It is getting locked during the call for SAPStartsrv.exe. What process/job could be triggerring these frequent calls to Sapstartsrv.exe.

No errors are there in the work directory WP logs.

There is no OS level service using this id. Also no other third party tool running on this server. Could you please assist to identify the source of the error and why it says Security ID is SAPService<SID> but locking the Account Name: <SID>ADM.
