CentOS Delete Users

How do i see a list of all user id's on a centOS box?  Also, how do i delete them?
1 Solution
To see all the local users, you have to see /etc/passwd file.  So as root run this

cut -f1 -d: /etc/passwd

Open in new window

To delete a user use command
userdel USERID

Make sure the user has no important files.  Once you are sure, you can also delete the home directory by using -r option

See detail
man userdel
