The maximum values are 999 days 23 hours 59 minutes
The minimum values is 1 minute although you can enter 0 minutes I can find not reference as to what happens if you do this.

I have been told that the maximum intruder reset interval is 7 days.  I believe there may be other limits as well.  Does someone else have a better answer?

There are several parameters to Intruder Detection. First,
there is a setting for how long the server will remember a bad password attempt. Typically this is set to 30 minutes, but can be as
short as 10 minutes of as long as 7 days. Then there is a setting for how many attempts will lockout the account. This is usually 3
attempts, but can be as short as 1 or as many as 7. Finally is the length the account is locked out. The default is 30 minutes but it
can range from 10 minutes to 7 days.

As I understand it the above timing are correct.

Default Grace logins attempts is set to six, allowing the user six tries before the account is locked.

Once locked the admisistrator needs to unlock the account.

Is there anyone who have tried to set any of the settings above the seemingly 7 days limit?
