How do I remove a Linux Eterm user via the GUI?

Warning: As always, please exercise caution when performing system maintenance, especially when initiating processes that can potentially delete data.

To remove a Linux Eterm user using the GUI:

  • System -> Administration -> Users and Groups
  • Select the user from the list
  • Select the Delete button
  • Verify that the dialog box says “I won’t delete username’s home directory (‘/u2/eclipse’)” before selecting Yes to proceed

Warning: if prompted to remove the shared home directory as shown in the dialog box below, uncheck the box before clicking Yes. Failure to do so will result in the removal of the entire Eclipse database directory (/u2/eclipse).

For your convenience, here is a screencast that covers the entire process for locking or removing a user:

If you prefer to use the command line, please see this page for instructions.
