Active Directory Password Lock

By mstrong ·
Is there a way to make it so a users domain password is unlockable? Active Directory defaults to a 3 attempt limit before locking a user out. Is it possible to make it so the password can never be locked?

Well there is a way to raise the amount of unsuccesful logins before locking the account...

I would suggest upping it to 5 attempts. But you do not want to go too high for security reasons. 3 attempts is usually fine, but 5 seems to be the magic Number.
