      Description

      When a user is logged in Liferay Sync and its password is changed in Liferay or LDAP for example, this user (depending on the password policies applied) can be eventually blocked.

      At this point Liferay Sync tries to log in continuously without success but does not notify the user, through the UI, the specific reason why.

      The requested behaviour would be that Liferay Sync UI notifies the user about it:

      "Acces denied. Invalid password", or something similar, and stops retrying automatically the login.
