Hi,

Recently I deleted a user by mistake.  Now I'm trying to add the user again and I get an error saying:

Error: the account "johndoe" can't be created because there is already a user-deleted account of that name.

How can I reinstate this user?

Thanks in advance.

 :-(

:-D Problem Solved.

Sorry Someone already asked this issue, but no fix was provided.  After a little reseach I was able to fix my problem.  Since I can not delete this Post.

I'll share with you my fix.

My particular problem lies on the sip-pbx server software running with the SME.  If you are using a sip-pbx with the SME then if you have an account on the SME and at the sip-pbx end, then both accounts should be delete.  If you delete the SME account but leave the sip-pbx account active you won't be able to reinstate the user again as an sme user.

See you next post!

Read his last post. He answered your question.
"It should just work" if it doesn't report it. Thanks!

Ok so you have another problem.

Try this
Code: [Select]
signal-event user-delete <username>
db accounts delete <username>


Then recreate the user.

deleting and recreating a user

I had the same problem and the way it worked for me was to do this:

userdel (user)
db accounts delete user

then rmdir /home/e-smith/files/user/username

then useradd user
passwd user


after this i went back into sme server server-manager and reset the password there as well.
I had a problem with an account just not accepting any password i set and this seems to be the only way I could delete and recreate the user.

Hope it helps some what!
