Configuring a Login Policy
You can set the maximum number of failed login attempts before the account is locked out for the specified lockout time. This type of policy is used to prevent password attacks.
 
Number of consecutive failed logins allowed
Number of failed login attempts before the account is locked out. The default is 10. If set to 0, the account is never locked out.
Amount of time the account is locked out. If this is set to 0, the account is locked out until the correct password is entered, or the administrator manually changes the account status and creates a new password. The default is 1 hour.
Time window in which the failed logins must occur within to lock the account
Duration of time after which the number of consecutive failed login attempts is cleared from the log. The default is 0, the user can continue attempts to authenticate, no matter how many consecutive failed login attempts have occurred.
