How to unlock orcladmin

Proving the point that using 'cn=orcladmin' or 'orcladmin' when starting Oracle Internet Directory (OID) Manager (ODM), is actually the same account, I managed to "prove" the point just once too often, resulting in a "your account is locked" error.

So, the question raises: how to unlock you superuser account orcladmin?

Very simple:
login on the Application Server where your OID runs, and:

$ORACLE_HOME/bin/oidpasswd connect=[tns_alias] unlock_su_acct=true

You will be asked to provide the ODS password - which happens to be the same as the ias_admin password, specified at install time. Which happens to be the password for orcladmin, too, unless you changed it.
