Re: Access is denied by the AUTH_MAXTRIES from a server and console.

Hi,

 

Seems like too many attempts

 

/etc/default/security file AUTH_MAXTRIES parameter is defined as;

AUTH_MAXTRIES= (some value) i.e 4

 

 

AUTH_MAXTRIES defines the maximum allowed number of consecutive unsuccessful login tries before an account is locked. If zero, any number of tries is allowed. 



i do not sure whether are you using remote userid or local userid to access into server.

by the way please try to unlock userid and try again

 

Thanks

You are trying to login by root on the console?
