How do I unlock an account?

When attempting to log in with a particular account I get the error message:

ORA-28000: The Account is locked.

How do I go about unlocking the account?

Some accounts are meant to be locked. You'll have schemas that exist for the purpose of containing data, but are not meant for active development. Make sure your DBA approves your change, otherwise you could open a big security hole in your database, esp if you are working with an account with a default password like SCOTT/TIGER
