The lsbks -l -DB option does not always capture "Too many login retries" blocked reason for users


When listing blocked reasons for a user with "lsbks -l -DB" the lsbks program tests the wrong value for failed number of logins. The program always compares the login count with the system setting and ignores any personal setting for the user.

As a result the program does not list "Too many login failures" when the count is greater than the user value but less than the system value.

Note that this issue only affects the output for -DB. The -a argument produces the correct output, and the user is still correctly blocked.

Resolution / Workaround

Install the hotfix HFBM-0041-1 from the HelpSystems Community Portal.

The hotfix includes a corrected version of the lsbks program binary where the test for the -DB option is corrected.
