You'll have to wait for the intruder lockout to time out before you can get in again. Do you have an alternate ADMIN equivalent account that isn't locked out? If so, you can remove the intruder lockout on the primary accounts. (this is why I always keep a "back door" admin account...)

Once you get back in, the intruder lockout should show you the time and station that caused the lockout. This should help you pinpoint the attacker.

Type "Enable login" without "" at the server console.

Enable login is a global switch. It has nothing to do with the intruder lockout. If you disable login then no-one can log in. When you enable login accounts that were locked out remain locked out. Intruder lockout can be reset manually by another admin account or you have to wait for the period to expire.

One thought - set server clock ahead at console and see if interuder lock releases. Build an aux ADMIN account and set clock back.

Enable login at the serverconsole resets the intruder lockout of the admin acount.
