console_login_mgr:warning]: too many bad logins on console

Hi Netapp Gurus,

We are getting the following alert continuously, not sure what is the issue.

console_login_mgr:warning]: too many bad logins on console

Please suggest how this alert can be mitigated ?

Re: console_login_mgr:warning]: too many bad logins on console

It looks like something (script? something connected to the serial port?) repeatedly tries to login with a wrong username/password. Please check your /etc/messages file to see if there's an IP address mentioned there. If not, check the serial port and disconnect it (if there's anything connected)
