How to unlock user ids in SAP

This article explains how to unlock user ids in SAP.

Why do user ids get locked ?

The most common reason why user ids get locked is due to entering the password wrong multiple times.  The number of times the system tolerates wrong passwords is based on a system profile parameter  Login/fails_to_user_lock.  Users could also be locked by Basis consultants when it is required.
