So I had users that were previously my “administrative” users on the VPS instances. Today I was trying to login with them, and was constantly getting “Permission denied (publickey, password)”.
I logged in as a different user onto the VPS and when I tried to “su” to that user, I got the message “Unknown id: $ID”!
In all of the communications that came down about the removal of sudo access, there was absolutely no mention that I saw of deleting of the administrative users from the VPS machines.
Since that user is gone, what happened to the contents of that user’s home directory?
Is anyone else having the same problem?
