Description Chinmay Paradkar 2015-10-20 10:24:04 UTC
Description of problem:

The global option "unlock_time" available with "pam_faillock" module does not have an option to lock a user account until it's unlocked by admin.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


Additional info:

The current Fedora rawhide version of pam_faillock has this feature "unlock_time=never" but the RHEL-7 package does not. Hence opening a Bug to backport the feature to RHEL-7.
