The Account Security Settings dialog box is used to lock out an administrator account, unlock an administrator account, and delete an inactive administrator account automatically (requires the ASM), and change the administration interface session timeout for a specific administrator account.
To open the Account Security Settings dialog box
In the administration interface, connect to EFT and click the Server tab.
On the Server tab, click the Server node you want to configure, then click the Administration tab.
Click any administrator account name (except Local computer\Administrators), and then click Account Policy. The Account Security Settings dialog box appears.
Do one of the following:
To lock out an account, select the Lockout admin accounts check box, then specify the length of time the account is to be locked out, the number of incorrect login attempts to count, and the period during which to count the attempts. To enable an account that has been locked out, clear the Lockout check box.
To change the default administration interface session timeout for this administrator, select the Disconnect admin accounts after check box, then specify the minutes of inactivity that you need.
Click OK to close the dialog box.
Click Apply to save the changes on EFT.
A change in any date-sensitive value resets the calculations. For example, if this feature was configured for 60 days, and you change it to 90 days, the count resets to zero, so that any inactive account that has been inactive for 59 days and was set to be deleted tomorrow, will now not be considered inactive until 90 days from today.
