Here are the advantages of using the User Unlock Tool.

Quickly Find All Locked Users

Unlocking user accounts is a common call to the helpdesk. This tool makes it easy for staff to find, unlock and reset passwords when users call.

Reset User Passwords

The reset password feature included options for randomly creating passwords or manually entering passwords. Also, includes the option for user must change the password at the next logon.

Easy to Use

The simple interface makes this tool very easy to use. Your staff can easily find and unlock user accounts with a click of a button.

Find Lockout Source

Repeated lockouts are frustrating! This tool will pull the logs from the domain controller and display the source computer of the lockout.

Save Hours of Work

The built-in Microsoft tools do not provide the most efficient way of handling locked accounts. This tool makes it incredibly simple to unlock and reset passwords when a user calls the support line.

PowerShell Not Required

Writing PowerShell script takes time and depending on the task can get very complicated. Our GUI tools require no PowerShell scripting and you can start using them right away.

“We purchased Active Directory Pro so that our Helpdesk could quickly unlock user accounts, it is a top support call. It has also been a lifesaver in troubleshooting repeat lockouts and finding where users were getting locked out from.”

Diana Frye – IT Support Manager

The source of the account lockout will be displayed in the source column. These details will only display if the correct auditing logs are enabled. Refer to the administrator guide for steps to enable.
