Description of problem: On RHEL 7.2 Workstations using KDE, with 2 monitors connected, when using the Screen Locker "Simple locker" or "Screen saver" with the "Require password after" box checked, both monitors display a Password dialog to break screen lock, and both dialogs submit authentication requests.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): kde-workspace-4.10.5-21.el7.x86_64
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go to System Settings -> Display & Monitor -> Screen Locker
2. Set "Require password After" to a non-null value
3. Wait till screen gets locked
4. Both the monitors require authentication
Actual results: Multiple Authentications are required to all the screens and "authentication failed" errors are recorded in /var/log/messages
Expected results: Single Authentication should unlock all the screens
Additional info: The issue is also reproducible upstream.
Do you really have kde-workspace-4.10.5-21.el7.x86_64? I thought in RHEL 7.2 we have KDE 4.11. I tested this now with RHEL 7.3 and kde-workspace-4.11.19-x and this was working for me pretty well.
I am checking with the customer about the same.
We have this issue in RHEL7.3 as well. I have asked more information to get confirmation about the same.

Fixed in kde-workspace-4.11.19-10.el7.
