    After delete a account(whmapi1 removeacct username=ab123456),I want to recreate the account.
    I run the same create user script again:
    Code:
    /usr/local/cpanel/bin/whmapi1 createacct username=ab123456 ...............
    .................................uid=123456 gid=123456 ...........................
    
    It will fail on console,I got the error message :
    Code:
    metadata:
    command: createacct
    output:
    raw: ~
    reason: The requested uid (123456) is already in use
    result: 0
    version: 1

    ======================================
    
    I run the linux command:
    id ab123456
    id: ab123456: No such user

    Hello,

    To update, it looks like a support ticket was opened to address this issue. The issue was addressed by removing some existing files with that UID from the /var/lve/snapshots/ directory on the system.

    Thank you.
