How to enable a disabled Unix account on HP-UX

I am very new to Unix. We have a Unix user account that was disabled due to multiple tries with an invalid password. How to enable the account?

Depends on a lot of stuff. Although sam can probably do it in any case. What version of HP-UX? Have you converted to a trusted system? Are you using nis?

try:
/usr/lbin/modprpw -k user
