I've been looking for the formal documentation for account lockout and
expiry handling. There are no references that I can find in
The only reference in MS-ADTS is in 188.8.131.52 PDC Emulator FSMO Role,
which gives the clue that we need to forward all bad passwords to the
PDC. But that leaves a lot of questions, like what to do (what error to
give) if the PDC is offline.
The only reference in MS-SAMR is to actual enforcement is in .184.108.40.206
Account Lockout Enforcement and Reset, but this is for password change.
There is also MS-SAMR 220.127.116.11.7.1 SamValidateAuthentication but nothing
I could find indicates how this fits in to the broader picture.
MS-NRPC refers to this as passthough authentication, and MS-NLMP does
not describe expiry or lockout at all.
Where can I find a clear description of how to implement account lockout
(for bad passwords) and expiry?
