Use the JOURNAL command to display or clear information about invalid  password conditions for a specific user ID or terminal.   

The JOURNAL command is documented in the VM:Secure Reference Guide - Chapter 2: Command Reference 

Below is a snippet of the JOURNAL command, refer to the Reference Guide for the description and syntax.                   
                                                                            
To list current journal information:                                        
JOURNAL {LIST | LISTPSWD } [{userid1 | termaddr} [command [userid2 [vaddr]]]]
                                                                            
To reset journal entries:                                                   
JOURNAL RESET {userid1 | termaddr} command [userid2 [vaddr]]                

==>termaddr                                                                
Specifies a terminal address for which to review or reset invalid          
passwords.                                                                 
                                                                           
                                                                            
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

for example - If you received the following - 

logon maint by <userid>  

VMXPWJ0166E Terminal '10.123.24.123' exceeded the CP logon password limit.

HCPLGA050E LOGON unsuccessful--incorrect password  

                      

Since the error is on the TERMid and the action was LOGON 

The command would look something like -                                     

JOURNAL RESET 10.123.24.123 LOGON
