Changing the number of allowed password entry attempts

The Kaspersky Security Center user can enter an invalid password a limited number of times. After the limit is reached, the user account is blocked for one hour.

By default, the maximum number of allowed attempts to enter a password is 10. You can change the number of allowed password entry attempts, as described in this section.

To change the number of allowed password entry attempts:

  1. Open the system registry of the device on which Administration Server is installed (for example, locally, using the regedit command in the StartRun menu).
  2. Go to the following key:
    • For a 64-bit system:

      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\KasperskyLab\Components\34\1093\1.0.0.0\ServerFlags

    • For a 32-bit system:

      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\KasperskyLab\Components\34\1093\1.0.0.0\ServerFlags

  3. If the SrvSplPpcLogonAttempts value is not present, create it. The value type is DWORD.

    By default, after Kaspersky Security Center is installed this value is not created.

  4. Specify the required number of attempts in the SrvSplPpcLogonAttempts value.
  5. Click OK to save the changes.
  6. Restart the Administration Server service.

The maximum number of allowed password entry attempts is changed.
