I was wondering if someone could help me figure out where LE is pulling logs from. 


I got this to try and help me figure out how / where various accounts are getting locked out from. I have numerous scripts for this scraping event logs across the environment and until recently I've always been able to find this data. So i was wondering if this could see something i didn't know to look for.


Sure enough when examining one of these accounts its finding all sorts of invalid logons in various locations but i can't find any logs that show it.


Where exactly is LE actually pull these logs from?

The lockout events themselves come from the domain controller specified in the lockout (event 4740).  That event has a Caller Computer Name field within which identifies the computer which the last invalid login which caused the lockout originated from.  When you do an examination in LE, the product combs through the event logs collected from that workstation and grabs all logon failures (event 4625).  Hope that helps!
