I'm having a strange account issue when authenticating to a Maximo Enterprise Web Service, via Active Directory, when using LDAP. Basically the request works fine when providing correct credentials via a SOAP Request Header (Basic Auth). It also works fine, when providing credentials to the UI cluster (Form Login). The account locks after 5 bad attempts as expected
The issue is when I use my .NET Web Form application to send the request, with Bad credentials in the header. The account locks right away. (receive a 401 unauthorized error).
It almost seems that the Enterprise web service is sending 5 bad requests at once. Is there anything I can do to troubleshoot this? Am I missing a Webshpere setting?
thanks for your time.
