I'm not much for reading patches, and while I've got the gist
of this, I
have a couple of questions:
1. What's ENOSYS?
In this context, it means not implemented.
2. From the man page:
This option forces sss_userdel to remove the user´s home directory and
mail spool, even if they are not owned by the specified user."
Who else would they be owned by, and how would that come about, and why?
A different UID. For example, consider this sequence:
1) sss_useradd foo (homedir and spool are created)
2) sss_userdel --no-remove foo (--no-remove can also be a system-wide
3) sss_useradd foo (homedir and spool are not created, just a warning is
printed that they already exist)
4) sss_userdel --force foo (homedir and spool are removed even though
they belong to a different user)
3. "Kill users' processes before removing him"
Yup, manpage bug. Thanks for catching it.
4. So far I've been able to use sss_userdel -k on a logged in
not see the expected warning message about the user being logged in.
This is with multiple processes running or just logging in in a shell.
The warning message is printed when deleting a user who is logged in
/without/ the -k flag. The -k flag just kicks the user out of the
system, by terminating all processes run by him - including his login shell.
Any further updates or examples the doc needs to be aware of for
clients, e.g., Solaris, Windows, Mac?
So far we don't port SSSD to these platforms, but when we do, just a
note that this flag is not supported outside Linux yet.
