Doc Type: Enhancement
Doc Text:
Feature: Prevent deletion of the last admin Reason: Administrators were able to accidentally delete a last user from Identity Management Administrators group, which could only be repaired with direct LDAP modification by Directory Manager. Result (if any): Identity Management does not allow Administrators to delete or disable last member in Administrator group and thus the Identity Management has always at least one active Administrator.

Description Dmitri Pal 2012-03-20 17:16:39 UTC
This bug is created as a clone of upstream ticket:

This is related to the ticket #2560 and forked out of it to track just the admin issue.

Comment 1 Rob Crittenden 2012-06-07 19:17:48 UTC
Fixed upstream.

master: f8e7b516d923142a23058cb23ee817522686cfe3

Things to test:

1. Delete admin from admins group (by default the only user)
2. Delete admins group
3. Add several users to admins group and try to remove all members at once, so:

ipa group-add-member --users=user1,user2 admins
ipa group-remove-member --users=user1,user2,admin admins

Should fail to remove them.

Two new errors were added: LastMemberError and ProtectedEntryError.

Comment 3 Namita Soman 2012-11-27 03:42:27 UTC
Verified using cli and UI with ipa-server-3.0.0-8.el6.x86_64

When deleting and disabling admin - got error -
admin cannot be deleted or disabled because it is the last member of group admins
