Hi,

What are the conditions triggering a user lock out? Is it possible to modify the conditions? After upgrading to 1.3.242 (from 0.8.300), I regularly observe some locked out users. It seems to me that the lock out condition is related to wrong password input.

Thanks for your help!

Invalid password attempts would be the cause of a lock out

And how many unsuccessful attempts is triggering the lock out? Is there a way to modify this setting?

This is set and can be changed in the web.config in the membership provider - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.security.membership.maxinvalidpasswordattempts.aspx
