We would like to implement the TDS options for lockouts on password retries (i.e. 3 strikes).  I know how to set this up in the TDS Web Admin tool, but I'm not sure how to do an admin over-ride to unlock the account.  It looks like I might just be able to type "user modify [username] account-valid yes" at the command line.  Is that correct?  The only info I could find about unlocking was to use TAM.

What would of course be ideal, is to show the lockout condition on the user profile or view in the app, then have an unlock button.  Wondering how I might query the condition, and secondly how I might set the account-valid attribute to "yes" since it doesn't seem to appear as a field in the schema for the user.

Thanks for any help.
