Seems like too many attempts
/etc/default/security file AUTH_MAXTRIES parameter is defined as;
AUTH_MAXTRIES= (some value) i.e 4
AUTH_MAXTRIES defines the maximum allowed number of consecutive unsuccessful login tries before an account is locked. If zero, any number of tries is allowed.
i do not sure whether are you using remote userid or local userid to access into server.
by the way please try to unlock userid and try again
