User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
In Administration I am unable to delete a user.  When I 
click 'delete' I get 'User Delete Failed'

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.search for user 'david'
2. click name link
3. click delete user

Actual Results:  I get 'User Delete Failed'

Expected Results:  I should be able to delete user

Additional info:

In this case the user has left the council so there is a security 
risk, thus I want to get him off the system.  He has published items 
in the past.  I can get around this by changing his password but I'd 
rather delete him complelety.
Comment 1 Daniel Berrange 2004-03-15 08:48:31 EST
As a general rule it is impossible to delete a user if they have ever
created any objects (eg, content) within the system, since the user
information is required for auditing purposes. The solution is to
login as admin & change their password so they can no longer access
the system.
