Primavera P6: The login failed. This account has been locked. Please contact your System Administrator.
The following error message appears if you tried incorrect P6 username & password for more than five times. Default login attempts is 5;
This account has been locked. Please contact your System Administrator
1.1) Log into P6 as admin or any other super user account; Click User Sessions under Administrator
1.2) Click on the Reset User link associated to the locked user. The locked user appears in RED color with a STAR icon. That’s it Try Login again
What if you have only one super user account and that also locked. 🙁 No worries, here is the solution.
2.1 ) Go to your P6_HOME\P6 and double click on the adminpv.cmd
2.2) I prompt for the log-in. Enter the privuser username and password;
2.3) Expand the config used by P6Web, Expand Database, Right click on the database instance and select Reset Login Failure. Log in to P6 again 🙂
Note: It will reset all the failed logins.
How to customize the Primavera P6 login failure attempts
1. Go to P6 admin config >> Expand the configuration used by P6 >> Expand Database >> User Security >> Configure the properties (Triple click to edit a value )
Log Login Attempts = Choose whether you want to log the log-in attempts
Login Lockout Count = Maximum number of time user can log in; Entering value 0 allows unlimited login attempt
Login Lockout Duration = Length of time user blocked
Allow Multiple User Sessions = The Same user can login into multiple p6
