In my previous post I talked about How to Configure SLES Linux to track and log failed login attempt records. One of Planet Malaysia Blog reader sent me an email asked me for help regarding an issue “faillog command reset all user failed login attempt record instead of single user on Linux“.

After checked and I found out the issue because of faillog option:

Reset all user failed login attempt record
#faillog -r -u user1

Only reset username: user1
#faillog -u user1 -r

So basically “faillog -u username -r” is the correct option to reset faillog for single user.

Please check “How to Configure SLES Linux to track and log failed login attempt records” for more information.
