Thumbs up Unlock the user account in the red hat directory server


Right now i am in a project, in which i do reset and unlock the user accounts from the red hat directory server. Actually i am the middle of errors, i successfully reset the user password through userPassword LDAP attribute, but for unlock feature i cant able to find the appropriate LDAP attribute.

FYI, I am developing the apps to access the server through my java code, and do the changes in the LDAP attributes, ok so plz guide me in that way that is more helpful for me.

Right now i need to know the exact LDAP attribute which i need to change to unlock a locked out user account in the RedHat Directory server, and also how do i determine a account is locked or not.

Thanks in advance,
Arun R.
