Opened: Jan 12, 2022
Severity: 4-Minor

Symptoms

For local authentication, the admin user is locked out after "n"(configurable) wrong entries. But, the same lockout for admin is not working for remote LDAP authentication when "Lockout for admin" is enabled.

Impact

Admin does not get locked out even after entering wrong password after "n"(this is configurable) times. This will have an impact on configuring authentication policies for admin and user..

Conditions

-- Remote Authentication is enabled. -- Lock out for admin is enabled.

Workaround
