How to Unlock a User Account in WebLogic Server

If a user unsuccessfully attempts to log into a WebLogic Server instance more than the configured number of retry attempts, they are locked out of further access.

This article shows you how to unlock a locked user so that they can log in again.

The Symptom

When a user was locked out, you can find an entry in the application server's log:

  <Jul 10, 2012 3:51:38 PM PDT> <Notice> <Security> <BEA-090078> 
  <User psr1 in security realm myrealm has had 5 invalid login 
    attempts, locking account for 30 minutes.>

The Solution
