Question Exclude an user from account lockout


I am using Red Hat LDAP (version 3) and I have passwordLockout set as "on" at global level. Is there a way to disable account lockout for a specific user?

Do you mean that everyone has a pwdPolicySubentry entry that points to a policy that has passwordLockout=on?

If that's the case you could remove the pwdPolicySubentry entry for that particular user, or set up another policy for users of this type.

I think you are able to add the pwdpolicy object class to that user's DN and override the passwordLockout attribute by having it set within the user DN.
