I have a problem with a couple of old user accounts.
We setup our security groups via Active Directory. Recently, some staff have left and had been removed from AD (and the security groups there). I had some remaining staff saying when they were creating events in a calendar, and staff responded, they were getting bounce back emails from the addresses of the staff that had left. All three 'old' staff still had accounts in DNN (but not in AD as they were removed earlier), so I deleted them. However, what I didn't realize was that it had left them listed in the DNN security groups. I tried deleting them from there, but I can't as the actual user account in DNN is no longer there, so I get an error.
I did read that DNN has a 'soft' delete to restore accounts, but because these accounts come from AD, they are not listed in the 'Users' table (only standard DNN accounts are there - basically our admin accounts for the site, but no AD user accounts). I also can't find a reference to them or other users in the same security groups.
Really al I want to do is delete any reference to these accounts from the Security Groups, whether that be a straight delete from a security group table, or whether I reinstate the DNN accounts and then delete from the groups.
I'm guessing if I reinstate in AD it won't be a match anymore (SID)? Or does it just use the actual user name to match?
