Hi Cody,

the "Banned Hosts list" from the Adaptive Ban Plugin is generated from the 
entries in the "/var/log/messages" file (like Fail2Ban works too).
Usually the log file is deleted on reboot, unless you have manually set 
"PERSISTLOG=yes" in your "user.conf".

But depending on how your firewall is configured, you can permanently block 
IP-addresses either in 
"/mnt/kd/blocked-hosts" or if you use *.netset blocking-list files in
