How do I unlock a user account from command line prompt?

Assuming I am a domain administrator, how can I see and unlock a user account in my domain by means of Windows command line either in CMD shell or in PowerShell?

"net user" will show you all the current users and "net user USERNAME /active:yes" will activate it. More user account commands can be by running "net help user"

Happy unlocking!

"/domain" switch is essential.
