remove a user

By rgooding ·
AIX 4.4.3
I am trying to remove a user that was incorrectly set up. When I use SMIT and the rmuser command I get the folowing:

3004-698 Error committing changes to "pdegres" : Value is invalid.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks
Richard

There is a problem related to ssh where the lastlog file becomes corrupt and user commands start reporting this error. Please verify your /etc/security/lastlog file and make sure it does not contain any garbage (i.e., binary chars). You can copy thefile into a new name and recreate an empty file with the same permissions and ownership. If it is corrupt, garbage will be in the first and last lines

Thanks for replying.. This solution did not help.. After checking around I found that the passwd filed was incomplete for the user. I added the necessary information and then...voila...
