Hi Tom,

When you get the error how does that appear - a red box with error message at the top of the page, or partially rendered page with `Error` in red?

The error itself suggests that there is an unresolvable subject i.e. the group has a Membership object which references a subject id which is no longer available. Running the unresolvable subject deletion utility (usdu) should confirm that.

If you browse to the group again and page through the members do you get the error without trying to delete the member again - indeed has the member been deleted?

I would expect that the member has been deleted and the error occurs when re-rendering the membership list - which ought to display a `new` member (from the `next` page) given that one has been removed. It may be a problem rendering this new member rather than a problem with the one you were trying to delete.

I`ve attached a replacement /WEB-INF/jsp/removableMembershipView.jsp which, if viewObject.subject is empty, will display `Problem rendering member <memberUuid>`. If you get that you can query grouper_members to see which subject id is pointed to by the member.

I'm seeing an error trying to remove a user from a rather large group.
Not sure if that is what's making the difference, but this same user has
been removed from a couple of other, smaller groups. The GUI error I'm
getting is:

# The entity does not exist.

And the line from the grouper_error log is:

2008/10/17 10:49:19.433 [TP-Processor43] ERROR

javax.servlet.jsp.JspException: An error occurred while evaluating custom

The user does exist in the LDAP directory that Grouper is searching on, so
I'm not sure of what other problem it might be encountering. Thanks for
any help!
