Can't help you with a PC command, but here is what I've done:

Have a command RESETUP Reset User Profile

Have a file with "mothers maiden name" - this was done so Help Desk could simply
tell user, "Your password has been reset to Mothers Maiden Name" and no one
knows what it is. This was an issue in a union shop when a supervisor would ask
for a users password to be reset and User Profile name was a risk...

Another file that contains "who can execute the RESETUP command"

Another file that is checked to prevent certain Profiles from being reset.

Another file that contains users to be alerted when a profile is reset.

The program does the reset and logs who did it, when, where and sends alerts to
certain users so we would know if a profile was constantly getting reset or if
there was an attempt to reset a sensitive profile or an IS profile....

And it might do some other stuff that I forget :-)

Along with this is a program that monitor QSYSMSG and alerts certain folks for
Device Varied off messages and then there is a RESETDV Reset Device command and
programs that do a reset and the logging and alerting described above...
