I have directory entries where the user profiles have been deleted years ago.  When you go to delete them it comes back with CPF9041 with recovery steps to take.  Message . . . . :   User *N, User ID and address JANE CLAYTON, cannot be   removed.                                                              How would I go about deleting them off the system then?

Software/Hardware used:
OS/400 V6R1 on a 9117-MMB iSeries

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Have you tried to recreate the USRPRF and then try to delete the directory entry?
You may even want to do another RCLDLO.

    I'd say to follow the 'Recovery' actions in the message. The first action seems impossible if the user profiles really have been deleted. The second action, RCLDLO, seems to be a very good idea -- you really shouldn't have any significant number of DLO by now. And until RCLDLO fully completes, I don't see any good way of making use of the third recovery action if it's needed at all. So, schedule RCLDLO DLO(*ALL) OUTFILE(QGPL/myrcldlo) and let it run to completion. You'll need to run it first with DLO(*ALL) since you probably can't determine any other way to go yet. And you'll want to generate an OUTFILE(QGPL/myrcldlo) to review later; name it whatever you choose. The joblog from the RCLDLO job and any resulting outfile should help guide whatever comes next. Best alternative is to call IBM Support, but it's almost certain that RCLDLO will be needed anyway. Tom

    Hi Tom, I did everything you have listed, but no luck I even did a DSPF FILE(QAOSSS18) which shows nothing.

    If you run through folders (not "directories", of course) and documents, are there any that were created and/or owned by the problem users? Keep in mind that documents might not be in a "folder". You might run some variations of QRYDOCLIB to see more about what the system thinks the distribution of DLOs is. Tom

    BTW, normally "User ID and address JANE CLAYTON" would look like a person's first and last name; but "CLAYTON" should be a SNA address. Unless your system address is "CLAYTON", I'm not sure that I would expect such an entry to be associated with a user profile in the first place. Can you say much more about these directory entries? Do you know any history about their purpose? Tom

    Have you tried the recovery actions suggested in the second level text of the message ? (cursor on message +F1)

    Hey Tom, the user Jane set it up many years ago and was not sure how to do. CLAYTON is her last name, not sure why she put it in as system address nor does she. I re-created the user profile, but doesn't help. I'm just trying to cleanup a mess from many moons ago.

    A real long shot -- Try adding a secondary name for your system with ADDDSTSYSN SYSNAME( CLAYTON ). Maybe you can work along that line to get your system to believe that the directory entry is for some kind of remote purpose. The RMVDSTSYSN command can remove secondary names. And did you get QRYDOCLIB to divulge anything useful? Note that Office Calendar items as well as SNA distributions (both incoming and outgoing, i.e., SNA e-mail) might be the stuff that must be deleted. Tom
