OAM logs shows the following trace:
[APP: oam_server#126.96.36.199.0] <Error> <oracle.oam.controller> <OAM-02010> <User account is locked. Authentication failed.>
By default OAM locks an user account after 5 unsuccessful login attempts.
To change this behaviour modify the parameter DefaultRetryLimit in oam-config.xml (OAM 11GR2).
There is a new setting, DefaultRetryLimit, which has superseded MaxRetryLimit as part of the new Password Policy functionality in 11.1.2, and defaults to 5 attempts.
By default it has the following value:
<Setting Name=”DefaultRetryLimit” Type=”xsd:integer”>5</Setting>
An user account gets locked after 5 unsuccessful login attempts.
To disable this behaviour put a value of 0.
