Question

What new lockout features should be known?

Answer

Below is what an end-user will see if locked out:

Note: Run top 200 rows query against dcs_umc < Tables < security.users to find locked data and locked  timeout to confirm when to try again.

To unlock as an Administrator, simply log into the UMC and click the padlock button on any user that shows as “Locked”:

What if  you want to modify any of these settings? Log into the UMC < Server < Settings < Login Management:

Note: These settings apply as well to the Java Console. It is less descriptive and only will yield the standard failure message if locked out. Just remember to instead check the SCSPDB < Tables < dbo.USR table instead.
