As I wrote in another message yesterday I'm trying to get debug info of the auth events but that isn't working so I just turned the whole log level up to 10 and grepping in the log files I can't find this users username except in some old entries not related to the current issue. What else could I try to debug the account lock out issue with this user?

It sounds like something is trying to auth using an old password (email 
account ?), but the logging should work. I use this in [global] on a 
Samba 4.10.8 DC: log level = 1 auth_audit:2@/var/log/samba/auth.log

This logs authentication failures to /var/log/samba/auth.log
