Description (partial)

Symptom:
9800 WLC:

Best Practices GUI page displays contradicting information in terms of:
- User Login policies


No restriction on the number of login attempts.
Benefits : Prevent login attacks by restricting the number of users who can use the same login credentials between 1

For example:
You have one WLAN on the WLC with the following configuration:

      wireless client max-user-login 0

This will show you as Best Practices compliant in WLC GUI for the following:
- User Login policies

The documentation through states the following:
 
The user login policies are provided to limit the number of concurrent logins by local users of the controller. You can limit the number of concurrent logins, and it is recommended that you configure a value greater than the default of 0 (unlimited login)
