This topic describes how delete and suspend system administrators on the Delphix Engine.


  1. Launch the ServerSetup application and log in using the sysadmin (or other system administrator) credentials.
  2. In the System User Management panel, click the user you want to suspend or delete.
  3. Suspend the user by clicking the red, crossed circle icon in the in the lower left corner of the System User Management panel.
  4. Delete the user by clicking the trash can icon in the lower left corner of the panel.

Suspending the sysadmin User

The sysadmin user is a required user for the Delphix Engine. This user cannot be deleted, but can be suspended. Suspending the sysadmin user prevents that user from being able to log into ServerSetup or to the console via ssh. The sysadmin user can still log into the console on the install machine, even if the sysadmin account has been suspended.
