RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Fixed In Version: ipa-4.10.2-3.el9
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
.Deleting the IdM `admin` user is now no longer permitted Previously, nothing prevented you from deleting the Identity Management (IdM) `admin` user if you were a member of the `admins` group. The absence of the `admin` user causes the trust between IdM and Active Directory (AD) to stop functioning correctly. With this update, you can no longer delete the `admin` user. As a result, the IdM-AD trust works correctly.

Comment 5 Michal Polovka 2023-08-14 13:33:27 UTC
Pre-verified using automation from webui/test_user.py with ipa-server-4.10.2-3.el9.x86_64

Error message thrown: 'user admin cannot be deleted/modified: privileged user'. (see the attached screenshot)
Therefore marking as pre-verified - tested.
