Cannot delete fortitoken user "The entry is used by 1 other entries"
We've got a user with a mobile token and their phone is no longer working so we've setup another phone for them and thought we could just re-send the activation email for the QR code to activate it on the new mobile but when we go into the user on the router there is no option ? If we edit his account it just shows the serial number of the existing token in grey. We've tried to delete the user off to re-add it but then we get the error above but i cannot find what "other entry" it's linked to ?
There is a DRIFT column next to his name that shows a -1 in there but no sure if that's relevant but how do we either get the QR code re-sent so we can activate it on the new phone or delete him off to re-add him?
It seems that you are trying to delete a FortiToken user but you are receiving an error message saying that the entry is used by 1 other entry. This error message indicates that the user you are trying to delete is associated with another object in the FortiGate configuration.
Regarding your issue, the DRIFT column with a value of -1 indicates that the token is out of sync with the FortiGate.
To resolve this issue, you can try the following steps: 1. Go to User & Device -> FortiTokens 2. Locate the user in question and click on the edit icon 3. In the FortiToken Information section, select the "Resynchronize Token" checkbox and click on "Update" 4. Wait for the resynchronization process to complete, and then try to delete the user again.
If the above steps do not work, you can try to search for the object that is associated with the user you are trying to delete. You can do this by searching the FortiGate configuration for the user's name or serial number. Once you have identified the object that is associated with the user, you can delete that object first and then try to delete the user again.
I hope this helps you to resolve your issue. Let me know if you have any further questions.
