Setting up security policies

Security Policies defines the policies created for an account that has it's own password and account lockout policies. Once you have created a Security policy, you can assign the policy to a user. Note that you cannot delete an account policy if it is in use (that is, a user is assigned to the account policy).

Note: Account lockout does not work with LDAP enabled.
