Removing a client VPN user is now an automated task within the MyRackspace portal. You can use the Delete contact ticket template to do the following activities:

  • Remove a user from the MyRackspace Portal account contacts list and phone support.
  • Automatically delete the client VPN user from all of your Rackspace dedicated firewalls.

This article describes how to remove a VPN user by using a ticket template.

Warning: A VPN user who is removed by following these instructions is also deleted from all Windows®, Linux®, and security devices as well as network devices.

Remove VPN user

To remove the VPN user, use the following steps:

  1. Log in to the MyRackspace customer portal.

    You will need your Rackspace account number, as well as your username and password.

  2. In the top navigation bar, click on the Tickets tab and select Create Ticket.

  3. On the Create New Ticket page, click the Subject text field, and in the drop down menu, select Delete Contact.

  4. Complete the following fields:

    a. Select the contact name in the drop-down field.

    b. Select the MyRackspace Portal + Phone Support + Systems & Devices option.

    c. Fill in the name of the VPN user you want to delete.

    Note: You can obtain a list of currently configured client VPN users by downloading your firewall’s configuration.

  5. Click Create Ticket.

Automation process

After you create a ticket, the automation process begins. The following overview describes the automation process:

  1. The automation creates an array of all the firewalls on your account.

  2. The automation then sends the commands to remove the VPN user specified from all firewalls within the array.

  3. The ticket is updated and closed if there are no errors.

    If errors occur, a ticket generates in the Network Security queue, which alert a Network Security Racker to complete the task manually.

    Note: If the ticket is sent to Network Security, this process might take longer to complete.
