Hello All,

I am looking for a powershell script that will let me automate and unlock of particular accounts.

For some reason they are some accounts getting locked everyday and I am thinking to implement this script as a schedule task until I resolve the issue. This task will run on one of my DC.

Any hint where to find one?

I don't know if you would really want to implement this, but the following would unlock all locked out accounts.
Search-ADAccount -LockedOut | Unlock-ADAccount

Open in new window

The lock out events should tell you which machine an account is locked out on.  Anyway, assuming you don't want to unlock all accounts, you can filter the results from Search-ADAccount before piping it to Unlock-ADAccount.  For example:
Search-ADAccount -LockedOut | Where {$_.samaccountname -eq "jdoe"} | Unlock-ADAccount

Open in new window

To unlock specific user account : Unlock-QADUser DSotnikov
Also, you can check this Account unlock and management tool to troubleshoot account lockouts, as well as add functionality to Active Directory.
