Procedure to reset an account on Aix

When this message is received you'll have to reset the account:

3004-303 There have been too many unsuccessful login attempts; please see
the system administrator.

Procedure to reset the account:

chsec -f /etc/security/lastlog -a "unsuccessful_login_count=0" -s <username>
chuser "account_locked=false" <username>

Chsec is the command needed to change an user's security attributes.
