Admin Account and Intruder Lockout

By brinkev ·
After implementing intruder lockout in our organization container on a NW5 network, the admin account became disabled. The intruder detection messages occur at fairly regular intervals at the console. At first, I thought it might me our NT server that was trying to login into NDS with an old password, but after taking the NT server offline the admin account was again disabled due to an intruder lockout.

Also, when I look at the intruder lockout properties in NWADMIN, the 'last intruder address' field is blank, so I can't track where the problem is coming from.

Does anyone have any ideas to track and resolve these problems?

hi,
maybe you're running software on the server itself which wants to login as an admin. some software need logging in to access nds objects. i've had a similar problem with our mail server formerly running on novell.

You may have someone trying to user the Admin account and is getting the old password. One option is to install accounting to see who and what is using your servers. As this can cause overhead on the servers you would not want to run it very long....A couple of weeks should do it... also you can track the Admin login at the monitor screen and see what Network address is using the Admin account... Yo need to know where the Mac address are... You can use NLIST from a dos prompt and get the User info and the Mac address...type nlist /? at a dos prompt for instructions....Good Luck and hope this helps....Chuck
