Locking failed logins

Does anyone happen to have a script to log and lockout local and ldap accounts on a Trusted server?

Our LDAP server settings to lock accounts after 5 failures is not working and the client server is Trusted and I cannot

use AUTH_MAXTRIES in the security file on the local client.

Re: Locking failed logins

why are you using trusted systems.. SMSE provides auditing and all of the control of users that trusted systems do.

Re: Locking failed logins

Obviously you have never worked in a Enterprise environment.  And changing what was built long ago is not something you want to just do on 500 plus servers just because you feel like it. And besides, that was not my origin question.
