Last updated on NOVEMBER 27, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Using dsutil account-activate may not work to activate accounts that show the nsAccountLock: true. 

Using dsutil account-inactivate may not work to inactivate accounts that show the nsAccountLock: false.



Using dsutil account-inactivate without using the corresponding dsutil account-activate may result in an account that is not active or inactive.

If the account attribute nsAccountLock was updated by an attribute update rather than the dsutil account-activate the account may not be unlocked or locked.
