    I have configured the custom password policy with lockout failure count , which is working but authentication we get the error as authentication failed rather than user is locked or account inactive .

    How can we achieve this?

    In general this is not recommended as it allows a potential attacker to know whether an account is valid or not. However, you can enable ‘return-bind-error-messages’ in the DS global config which will return more comprehensive errors such as –

    Invalid credentials (49)
    additional info: Invalid Credentials: Rejecting a bind request because the account has been administratively disabled
