This change removes the guest user and home directory from the system.

This change removes the guest user. If a user logs in with a generic username, audit trails are of limited value as it is not necessarily possible to identify who has accessed an account. The guest account should be removed and all users should be given specific logon ids to ensure traceability and accountability.


Remove the guest user-

rmuser -p guest
rm -r /home/guest
