hi,

 

having  windows  / ubuntu  and mac  machines  all  integrated  into our Active directory , need to  understand how ubuntu and mac machines  interpret  :  "Account Lockout Policy"  in default domain  policy ? 

 

thanks.

The same way as Windows machines. The policy affects the domain controllers who authenticate the users. They are the ones who lock the user accounts, regardless of platform that tries authenticating towards the DC.
