1. Call transaction EWZ5. You will see a list of users and their current status.

3. Put a check mark beside the users that you do NOT want the system to lock (SAP*, DDIC, TMSADM, other administrators, etc.)
4. Once you have selected the users that will not be locked, click the Save button. You will be returned back to the initial screen.

6. You can unlock the users using the Unlock User button. This will not unlock users that were locked prior to using EWZ5.
