OK, I'll be the stupid one here... Why is it an option in the DB
maintenance screen... When we first went to Emerald (2.5, new install)
about 6 months ago I remember running this script... That was the ONLY way
I could clear ghost operators from the DB...

The instructions on the DB maintenance screen say you can run the script
multiple times if your upgrading to a newer version of Emerald... let's
see... we started with .2xx and now we're on .3xx...

I'd say the screen needs to be changed... I can understand having the
script but can't it be left off the list as a choice.

Since I did run this script what damage has been done to the Emerald DB...
I realize it's working (Emerald) but why shouldn't the script be run on a
2.5 DB.

Thanks for the clarification.
