Lab 36, Doesn't work as expected

In Lab 36.1 I followed the solution on CentOS and Ubuntu. It denies after 3 failed attempt as expected. But I see nothing if I run "sudo pam_tally2" on both systems. And even after that my test account is not locked. I can login with correct password. I don't understand why mine works different than the lab document. Is anyone else experiencing the same?

I found the topic from the forum "Lab 36.1 - Cannot get PAM working with SSH." But it seems little bit different than mine.
