10.5: Delete users accounts from command line in 10.5
Authored by: ktappe on Oct 11, '11 02:22:18PM

At the top, the hint says this must all be run from single user mode. I've found there is an alternative: Run it via ssh on a Mac that you're sure is at the login screen with nobody logged in locally. The dscl commands certainly do fail if you're logged into the GUI, but work fine over ssh, which is great news for those of us trying to support Macs that are hundreds of miles away that we can't put into single user mode.

HTH,
-K
