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.
