Maximum login attempts

Hi All,

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.

Thanks.

If an entry is commented out this means: "use the default".
