HP Tru64 UNIX V5.1B (Rev. 2650) - ksh: /usr/lbin/modprpw: not found

I am trying to unlock a user's account in HP Tru64 UNIX 5.1B. When I execute the command as below it displays error message. 


# /usr/lbin/modprpw -k <userid>

ksh: /usr/lbin/modprpw:  not found


Really appreciate any suggestions or workarounds. Thanks!

Well, it appears that you're trying to use an HP-UX trusted system command on Tru64.  As you can see, that doesn't work.


For Tru64 check this link:


According to the post:


To unlock user account

/usr/sbin/usermod  -x administrative_lock_applied=0 username

Thank you. I did try this. But it still shows the user as locked. I ran the passwd -q command and it showed the below value.
