Novell Identity Server FCS build 491
Novell Access Administrator


Access Administrator console can be used to look at the intruder detection settings for the admin user, or anyone under the default o=novell container. The 'view objects' icon at the top of the screen can be used to select the novell container where the intruder detection settings are stored.

By default, these intruder detection settings are set so that the

- we detect intruders after 7 unsuccessful logins
- we reset the intruder attempts value after 30 minutes

The option to lock accounts after detection is disabled by default. However, even with it disabled, the account is locked for 30 minutes.


A defect has been entered on this. It is an advantage that intruder lockout is detected and should be enabled by default anyway.
