I created a new Admin account in Sierra High and needed to delete the previous admin account which is marked now as the standard user. However, after unlocking as admin and selecting the respective user that I would like to delete, I see the
- sign is marked as Grey.
This is all accounts and I would like to delete the
mac user account,
$ dscacheutil -q user | grep -A 3 -B 2 -e uid:\ 5'[0-9][0-9]' name: mac password: ******** uid: 501 gid: 20 dir: /Users/mac shell: /bin/bash -- -- name: chaklader password: ******** uid: 502 gid: 20 dir: /Users/chaklader shell: /bin/bash
How do I delete the respective account? I find a code snippet to run on the terminal, i.e,
sudo /usr/bin/dscl . -delete "/Users/mac". Should I try that and will work out?
As an answer suggested, I'm not logged in to the the fast user switching menu.
As it was asked, I run
who in the terminal and get the result,
$ who chaklader console Dec 28 06:01 chaklader ttys000 Dec 28 14:51
So, in brief the other user, mac was not in the terminal.
