this is to create the user but how to give it the unlock privilge only? I don't want it to be a local administrator, but only to unlock the workstation if another user has locked it.

when user locks a desktop only he can provide a password to unlock it, either you choose a different name or unlock it with him. the other user must have enough permissions to unlock a workstation ie administrator

There is no other way to give them unlock privilge only without full administrator privilge?
