When attempting to sign in several times to Deep Security Manager with an incorrect password, the user will be locked out. The number of attempts to sign in is configured under System > System Settings > Security.
It is always recommended to create a new Admin user on the first log in and keep the MasterAdmin as the back up. If you can log in with one administrator user, you can unlock the users who have been locked out from the Deep Security Manager console.
Do the following:
- Log in to the Deep Security Manager console using one of the working Admin users (example, MasterAdmin).
- Go to Administration > Users.
- Double-click the username or user that has been locked out and then deselect the Locked Out (Prevented from system sign in) check box.
- Click Apply > OK.
If all the administrative users are locked out, you can use the following command to unlock them.
