The set password-retries DXServer Commands sets the number of consecutive failed login attempts before the user account is suspended.

CA Directory uses the Operational Attribute DxPwdFailedAttempts to record the number of failed login attempts.

This command has the following command-line format:

set password-retries = number-retries;
  • number-retries - Specifies the number of times a user may attempt to log in with an incorrect password before their account is suspended.
  • Default - 3

DxPwdFailedAttempts with DxPwdFailedTime work to implement Intruder Detection within CA Directory.
