Just deleted a user from our BES which is connected to Lotus Notes server.
When I tried to re-add this user I got this message:
"User xxxx is in delete pending state in server xxxx. Please recover the user before adding user to the server"

How can I solve tis?
Thanks

hmm, haven't seen that one. Do you still see the name in the enterprise manager client?

No. It is not there or at least is not visble.

Did you check the Notes DB that contains the user list ?

Does it show up in the pending delete column in the BES manager ?

I hope this helps !

You can try deleting their profile from the database. With your notes client go to File->database->open, select your BES server then open BES\BlackberryProfiles.nsf

Find the name in question..double click on it and then on that form should either be a link or info regarding the user's state database. You'll want to delete their state database off the server.

Then you can delete their entry from the blackberryprofiles.nsf database

Well, I tried to open the the bbprofile.nsf and I got this:
- if I open it as administrator, I can see nothing
- if I open it as the deleted user, I can see the user but I'm not allowed to delete it.

It seems to be an authorization problem.
How can I solve this?

I was able to solve this.
I stopped Notes console, open the blackberrysprofile.nsf, as you mentioned, with administrator rights and I was able to see the users.
Deleted the "bad guy" and that was it!
Thanks guys.
