The pam_tally2 utility can be used to unlock user accounts as follows:
# /sbin/pam_tally2 --user username --reset

Without the reset, it lists the failures.

/sbin/pam_tally2 --user fubar
Login           Failures Latest failure     From
fubar            0

>Thanks guys,

Of course, you know about the faillog program.  Faillog -u userid tells
you if that userid is locked out, and faillog -u userid -r resets the
account.  Check the man pages for more info.
