Secutity login delete

Hi There,

I can't able to delete the user account for 'console' application with authentication method password. I am getting below error while running this command.  

 

cluster::> security login delete -user-or-group-name <user> -application console -authentication-method password

 

Error: Another console entry with password and admin settings must be created before this one is modified or deleted.
command failed on vserver "**********" user-or-group-name <user> application "console" authentication-method "password": resource in use
0 entries were deleted.

 

cluster::> security login delete -user-or-group-name <user> -application * -authentication-method password

Error: Another console entry with password and admin settings must be created before this one is modified or deleted.
command failed on vserver "**********" user-or-group-name <user> application "console" authentication-method "password": resource in use
0 entries were deleted.

 

FYI, I can able to delete all applications for user except "console". user is no more with the organization. Can some one please help me to delete the user account.

I've run into the same problem, did you ever work out how to do it?

ONTAP 9.3P4

Re: Secutity login delete

Hello.

 

Same problem observed on NetApp Data ONTAP v9.3P4, trying to delete a "console+password+admin" user in the cluster SVM.

 

NetApp Data ONTAP documentation extract: "Data ONTAP requires that at least one cluster user account with the "admin" role capability and the console application type remain unlocked."

 

Additional info: the "admin" user is locked, and there are several other unlocked "console+password+admin" users.

 

Successful procedure:

1 - Unlock the "admin" user.

2 - Delete the user to be deleted.

3 - Lock the "admin" user.

 

Best regards.
