Removing or retiring a user account
select a user name, then select Delete
or Retire from the Users menu.
If you are operating with the Improved or High security profiles,
only Retire is available.
Removing or retiring a user account does not remove the
user's files; the system administrator must do this manually
by deleting the directory. In addition, there may be other
files that belong to the user.
``Changing ownership of files with an obsolete UID/GID''
for more information.
When operating with the High (C2) security profile, a user is never
removed from the system. Once assigned, a UID
is never reused. Instead, a user account
is ``retired,'' or removed from service. Under other profiles,
a user can be completely removed from the system.
To allow UIDs to be reused regardless of the security
profile, you can define
REUSEID=YES in /etc/default/login.
