NAME

       kas_unlock - Unlocks a locked user account

SYNOPSIS

       kas unlock -name <authentication ID>
           [-admin_username <admin principal to use for authentication>]
           [-password_for_admin <admin password>] [-cell <cell name>]
           [-servers <explicit list of authentication servers>+]
           [-noauth] [-help]

       kas u -na <authentication ID>
           [-a <admin principal to use for authentication>]
           [-p <admin password>] [-c <cell name>]
           [-s <explicit list of authentication servers>+] [-no] [-h]

DESCRIPTION

       The kas unlock command unlocks the Authentication Database entry named
       by the -name argument. An entry becomes locked when the user exceeds
       the limit on failed authentication attempts, generally by providing the
       wrong password to either an AFS-modified login utility or the klog
       command. Use the kas setfields command to set the limit and the lockout
       time, and the kas examine command to examine the settings.

       To unlock all locked user accounts at once, shutdown the kaserver
       process on every database server machine, and remove the
       /var/lib/openafs/local/kaauxdb file from each one. The kaserver process
       recreates the file as it restarts.

OPTIONS

       -name <authentication ID>
           Names the Authentication Database entry to unlock.

       -admin_username <admin principal>
           Specifies the user identity under which to authenticate with the
           Authentication Server for execution of the command. For more
           details, see kas(8).

       -password_for_admin <admin password>
           Specifies the password of the command's issuer. If it is omitted
           (as recommended), the kas command interpreter prompts for it and
           does not echo it visibly. For more details, see kas(8).

       -cell <cell name>
           Names the cell in which to run the command. For more details, see
           kas(8).

       -servers <authentication servers>+
           Names each machine running an Authentication Server with which to
           establish a connection. For more details, see kas(8).

       -noauth
           Assigns the unprivileged identity "anonymous" to the issuer. For
           more details, see kas(8).

       -help
           Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options
           are ignored.

EXAMPLES

       In the following example, an administrator using the "admin" account
       unlocks the entry for "jones":

          % kas unlock -name jones -admin_username admin
          Administrator's (admin) Password:

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

       The issuer must have the "ADMIN" flag set on his or her Authentication
       Database entry.
