Cannot Delete local User in Brocade 6500

Hi Friends,

 

While trying to delete a local user (admin role), I am getting the below errors.

 

FIBER12:xxxx> userconfig --show xxx_xxx_admin

Account name: xxx_xxx_admin
Description: Administrator
Enabled: Yes
Password Last Change Date: Wed Sep 24 2014 (UTC)
Password Expiration Date: Not Applicable (UTC)
Locked: No
Role: admin
AD membership: 0 255
Home AD: 0

 

FIBER12:xxxx> userconfig --delete xxx_xxx_admin
Cannot manage the target account due to conflicting AD permissions

 

FIBER12:xxxx> userconfig --deletead xxx_xxx_admin -a 255
Cannot manage the target account due to conflicting AD permissions

 

What is this Ad Membership and how can I delete this user??

Re: Cannot Delete local User in Brocade 6500

Hi,

 

what is the FOS version?

Can you please provide the output from 'userconfig --show' for the user running the delete command? 

Are the user trying to do the deletion a Radius/LDAP/AD/Tacas account or a local account?

Hi,

 

see if you can remove the 255 AD by using CLI below and then delete the user

 

userconfig --deletead xxx_xxx_admin -a 255

Re: Cannot Delete local User in Brocade 6500

Hi,

 

the user deleting the old user need to be member of at least the same ADs as the other user, so your user need AD: 0 and 255, or possible 0-255. You could try to add 255, or 0-255 to your and then re-run the delete.  I will see if I can take a look in the lab later this week or beginning next week, what is the FOS level on the switch? And is you running/using VF (fosconfig --show), please?

Limited number of possible solution

 

- try by adding all ADs to your user and then delete the xxx_xxx_admin user

 

userconfig --addad kisalipa -a 0-255

 

or

 

userconfig --addad kisalipa -a 255

 

and the try delete the xxx_xxx_admin user.
