Description Dmitri Pal 2012-03-20 12:47:09 EDT
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:


During initial experience with IPA, a person accidentally
deleted their IPA admin user via the web interface.  Put in some safe-guards to
prevent this.

It's difficult to recreate the admin user.  Also this could easily reoccur when
the IPA infrastructure rollout is complete, and the day-to-day is turned over
to Operations.


- Should we throw an 'are you sure' prompt in the GUI when deleting a certain
type of entry
- What class of entry we would add to a 'prompt-list' -- admin ? replication ?
internal directory entries ?
- Prompt for everything maybe ?
  - Add a setting to toggle prompting ?
- Perhaps customer could identify their Admin OU, and the GUI adds it to a

Thank you taking your time and submitting this request for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. The request was cloned to the upstream tracker long time ago (see link to the upstream ticket above), but it was unfortunately not given a priority neither in the upstream project, nor in Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Given that this request is not planned for a close release, it is highly unlikely it will be fixed in this major version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. We are therefore closing the request as WONTFIX.

To request that Red Hat reconsiders the decision, please reopen the Bugzilla with the help of Red Hat Customer Service and provide additional business and/or technical details about it's importance to you. Please note that you can still track this request or even offer help in the referred upstream Trac ticket to expedite the solution.
