When the user logs in to an application that relies on WebSphere to authenticate to an LDAP server (Microsoft AD) and types the wrong password, we verify that:
• The wrong password is sent to the main LDAP server + 1 retentative • If we have the Primary LDAP Server + 1 LDAP Failover Server sent 1 for each + 1 retentative on the principal. In this case with 3 wrong password
Our policy is that if the user misses the password 5 times it blocks the user.
We requested improvement in WebSphere regarding this case so that in case the first LDAP server deny the password is not passed on to the others. Only be passed to the others if the LDAP Server is out. And not due to incorrect credentials.
