I am aware how to lockout a user after X attempts
Lockout SettingsDefinitions and Users -> Authentication Servers -> Advanced.
Just wanted to know do we unlock the account before the mentioned time period ends
Hi Mahesh Mane
If you would like to reset the counters for the incorrect attempts, you need to Click Flush Authentication Cache under Definitions and Users -> Authentication Servers -> Global settings. This will reset the counters for Blocked Password Guessing for all users.

The same can be done as root at the command line:
