What is the "official" way to reset account lockout in Windows Server 2008 R2?

My organization has an Active Directory Domain on a Windows 2008 R2 server.  (The AD schema is still at Windows 2000-level, I believe.)  I have a user whose computer has been trying to connect to a shared resource using a bad password, and I'm in the midst of troubleshooting that problem.  But my question is, what is the "official" way to reset locked out AD accounts in Windows Server 2008 R2?

After googling, all I could find is the account lockout tools for Windows Server 2003 here.  Shouldn't there be some kind of built-in Windows Server 2008 tool for resetting locked out accounts?

On another note...your schema is at 2008 R2 if you have that DC...your functional level is still lower with the older DCs.
