AD Authentication and Local DB Authentication in APM

Hello,

I've been practicing LAB for APM lately.
Here is my structure.

I found that I can successfully log in with my AD account without any problems!
However, when I try to log in using a local database account, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't...

I'm not sure if I'm having problems with my schema.


Any Help is appreciate.


 

  • Hi SanYang 

    Indeed, the AD retries 3 times before falling back to localDB.

    You can control this behaviour by simply modifiying Max Logon Attempts to allow just one attempt

    Let me know if it works

  • Hello,

    Can you tell me what is the ending related to unsuccessful LocalDb auth ?

    As there may be multiple reasons for authentication issues, can you share AD Auth and LocalDB auth agents details ?

     

    Regards

      Hi yakai ,

      Thanks for your reply.
      Here is my AD Auth and LocalDB auth Setting

       

      When I login with local DB account, it fails.

      I realized that F5 didn't go through the Local DB authentication process after it thought my AD authentication failed...
