How can I increase the number of failed login attempts before user gets locked out? Now seems to be 3 and can't spot such a setting in web.config. Or is it some ASP.net setting expected to be in the database? If so, I'd expect to be able to set it via admin UI somewhere

Search for this "maxInvalidPasswordAttempts" in the web.config and change the value.

Please let me know is this was helpful for you.

thanks, was expecting something like maxLoginAttempts and couldn't find it - should have searched for max instead of maxLogin and login

This is the standard membership property as you can see at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.web.security.membership.maxinvalidpasswordattempts(v=vs.100).aspx

indeed the naming of the property is fine, since invalidLogins would't mean just wrong password. Was just looking for the wrong thing
