This works for me on HP-UX 11.11

while read user garbage
passwd -s $user
done < /etc/passwd | grep "LK"

For HPUX, process the output from the following "logins" command: Locked accounts contain "LK" in the 8th ":" delimited field.

logins -xto

If you are root, try ' passwd -r files -s -a ' this will give you a list of all accounts that are locked. My systems are trusted, so not sure what would work on an untrusted hpux system.
