Radius authentication locked out policy

We setup a radius server on windows 2012 to authenticate our wireless.
everyone has a mac here and so when connecting to our wireless we need to type our AD credentials.
I wrote the policy that after 5 failed attempts the account will be locked but that didnt work.
I then found this article: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd197529(v=ws.10).aspx and made the changes but that still didnt work.

anyone has a suggestion on how I can make sure that failed login to connect to the wireless will lock the account?

after spending hours on this, I can see the that GPO I created is not applying the account policies. it does apply the auditing part so I know the policy works but any changes I make to the account policies are not showing up when I run rsop.msc

thx for your help/advice

ok so using the registry key I kinda make it work.

the NPS is on one of our DC and I changed teh key there but that doesnt work. I then changed the key on our SBS server and it shows the locked account int eh registry.
unfortunately if I entered the right password it does unlock me automatically which is kind of stupid as there is no point of having that policy in place if the user can just unlock himself

Where are you applying the GPO? It needs to apply to your domain controllers OU.

yes it is applied to the DC OU.
other settings in that policy are updated and pushed if I changed them, just not the account policies.
it is the only policy applied so nothing to over write the settings.
I am just puzzled right now
Use GPMC to run policy results wizard on the NPS/DC it will show you which GPO is enforcing the password policy..

Is this a brand new domain in 2012, or this is a domain that is of a long running firm, ...

Pre 2008 password policy was managed through default domain GPO. Only.

ok I figured out the issue. for the radius it does not use GPO anyway but the registry key. the strange thing is that I needed to change the key on the SBS and not on the Radius server
