Deactivating users


Recommended Posts

I'm trying to deactivate a user with the command 'cm deactivate user'.  Trouble is the user has been removed from the active directory and the ID has been replaced with a string starting 'S-1-5-21'.

The response was "The user {S-1-5-21} does not exist.  Maybe you have to use the flag "--nosolveuser" to deactivate a user that doesn't exist in the authorisation system anymore."

What are the ramifications of using this command?  Will it simply deactive the user?

Hello Rick,

yes! That's right, it will deactivate the "  {S-1-5-21...} " account.

Plastic SCM stores the AD/LDAP sids so if the user is not available anymore we can't resolve it (in order to get the human friendly name), by using the  "--nosolveuser" you are just bypassing the resolution.
