How to configure the number of attempts while accessing the CLI prompt using the VTY (telnet) session

Resolution

When you telnet to the switch, you have a maximum of three tries or attempts to login with the line password before it displays the message % Bad passwords. The only way to retry is to open another session window.

By default only three attempts are allowed and this is not configurable.
