Maximum login attempts
Posted on 2011-10-31
As as required by our corporate security policies, maximum number of login retries should be set as 5. In the login file, I found a setting "Retries = 5" however this is commented out (#). I understand that in Solaris 10 the default value is 5. What I would like to know is if the parameter is commented, does this mean that the system will allow unlimited retries or will the default value of 5 be set.
