After one failed login to DCE with the wrong password my LDAP server is locking out people. I believe DCE is attempting to retry multiple times (need to verify) but my company policy is more then one attempt...
Any ideas or ways to change the attempts?

I've only seen one other instance like this and never did see anything resolve it. I'd first suggest running a packet capture to verify if DCE is sending a single or multiple requests to your LDAP server. Also check to see if there is some sort of intermediary system involved. I do recall one instance where DCE couldn't always properly connect and it was due to DCE hitting an LDAP to a different authentication server...kind of like a gateway. That could also cause issues.
I've tested this on using Active Directory on a Windows 2012 system and I don't get locked out after a single failure.
