Hi. We've successfuly switched to AD authentication our commons OVA-based installation.

Now the question arises - how can we remove the users that are no longer needed?

For example, I've tried to use a normal p4 user -d command but since we are using an AUTH trigger, we can no longer provide a passowrd to admin user that has privilages to remove a user in perforce via -P parameter.

What is the correct way to remove a user with AUTH trigger in place?

Disable the trigger, delete the users and enable trigger again.

Harry is correct. I'm happy to say that the next server release has proper AD/LDAP support which will make all of this nonsense go away, but until then removing the trigger briefly to clean up those users is your best bet.
