Question of the grace login number

Hello everybody,

If a user's account is expiring during the weekend and the user tries several times to synchronize his email, how will operate the login grace?
Does the account will lock when the number of grace login will be achieved?

Thx

In my experience, no. It will stop connecting, but as LDAP does not do
grace, it will not lock the account. I assume you use LDAP
authnetication?

Also, a nice touch is to make the password change interval a multiple
of 7 to make sure it expires on a weekday.

Hi

To confirm what Anders has said... If a user’s LDAP password expires, the Mobility Connector does not allow the user’s mobile device to connect to the mobility system until the user resets the LDAP password and reconfigures the mobile device with the new password. This functionality prevents mobile devices from consuming grace logins and locking the user out.

Thank for your quick answer. I'm using a LDAP authentication.

Hmmm ... very good reasoning. I think not all of my users change quickly the password on the device and lock the user out after too many tries.

Thank you.

OK. No it will not lock the account, but the phone will not sync until
they change password
