ManageEngine's EventLog Analyzer is a comprehensive log management tool that makes it easy for you to monitor all database activities, audit user accesses, track database server account changes, and ensure integrity of confidential data stored, especially in your MS SQL server database.

24013: Account unlocked

Event 24013 occurs when a SQL server login account gets unlocked. This event occurs when a privileged user (administrator) unlocks a user's locked account. This event is important in the security context because it helps keep track of when a user's account was unlocked after being locked out. It is generated by the LOGIN_CHANGE_PASSWORD_GROUP action group. Administrators can derive important information from this event including the:

  • Date and time at which the event occurred.
  • Session identifier of the event.
  • Privileged user who performed the action.
  • ID, name, and type of the target object (in this case, the SQL server login).
