The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 8166
winbind offline logon locks out users on bad password attempts
Last modified: 2011-06-28 15:24:36 UTC
The bad password count logic is not bypassed on cached offline logons, which is how windows behaves.
Worse yet, the count is honored, but the duration is not, so a user who locks himself out while offline can never logon again until reconnecting with the DC.

I think this is a blocker. And now we have patches an easy fix before final release :-).
hm, in fact I exactly made it behave like that on purpose (to not allow offline password attacks like in windows).

Well, then there is one giant hole...there is no lockout duration.
As just discussed on irc with Günther:
Better fix it this ways now, since we don't have
a patch ready now to add the extra value that Günther
intended to add...
Assigning to Karolin for inclusion in 3.6.0
Pushed to v3-5-test and v3-6-test.
Re-assigning to Günther to decide whether to close the bug report or not.
no longer blocking the release of 3.6.0 at least.
