I issue the command

aaa local authentication attempts max-fail 2

Then I assign it to vty 0 4

After 2 wrong attemps the user is locked out - how long is the information about the failed attempts stored? And what information does the router store?

Is the line for all users locked?

This information should stay there till the time admin resets it. The access is blocked only for the blocked user

clear aaa local user fail-attempts --->Clears the unsuccessful login attempts of the user.

clear aaa local user lockout--->Unlocks the locked-out user.

show aaa local user locked --->Displays a list of all locked-out users.
