Last Updated: Oct 31, 2012 05:50PM PDT

Change the file:

C:\Program Files\NovaStor\NovaBACKUP Central Management Console\Service\ManagementServer.Service.WindowsServiceHost.exe.CONFIG

Find the following entry:

<add name="EFMembershipProvider" type="ManagementServer.EFProviders.Security.EFMembershipProvider, ManagementServer.EFProviders.Security" connectionStringName="ManagementServerDatabaseModelEntities" applicationName="ManagementServerService" passwordFormat="Hashed" maxInvalidPasswordAttempts="5" passwordAttemptWindow="10"/>

PasswordAttemptWindow is in minutes.

Save and Close the file.

Restart the Management Server service after you change these values.
