Prevent account lockouts - 12.Nov.2008 9:47:00 AM

I am wondering if there is a way to prevent an account from being authenticated (or attempting to be authenticated) by ISA 2006.  I know you can restrict access to a rule by exception but what I am looking for is whether or not you can prevent a user from even being authenticated. 

For example, we have several service accounts which, if locked out, can cause web site / server outages.  If a malicious user gets the names of these service accounts and tries to log in using them with bad passwords, they will become locked and our site will go down.  Since these accounts should NEVER be authenticating through ISA for the given rules, can they be restricted so that an account lockout does not occur?

Thanks in advance for any help or suggestions!

To partially solve this you can use LockoutGuard.

It will still allow the first few attempts though; it's designed to prevent lockouts of real user accounts.

If you're *really* into the idea of blocking authentication attempts for some accounts, it'd be possible to catch the requests with an IsaScript and replace the username with something known to be non-existant.
