    To fix it you should find the task or tasks where that resource/user assigned as a Status Manager. (working for 2007 and 2010).

    Just select all projects in PWA > Project Center and open for read only or editing in Project Professional. Then open all summary tasks add "Status Manager" column and filer it to find your user|resource.

     

    Change the Status Manager

    To change the Status Manager of the project, complete the following steps:

    1. Open the enterprise project in question in Project Professional.

    2. Apply any Task view, such as the Gantt Chart view.

    3. Right-click on the column header to the right of the Task Name column and select Insert Column from the shortcut menu.

    4. In the Column Definition dialog, click the Field Name pick list and select the Status Manager field, and then click the OK button.

    The system inserts the Status Manager field to the right of the Task Name field.

    5. Click the Status Manager pick list and select your name from the list for each task that you must manage.

    Note: The Status Manager pick list includes the names of all other Status Managers in the project, plus your own name. If you are the third manager to open the project, for example, the Status Manager pick list includes the names of the first two managers, along with your name.

    6. Click File > Publish to publish the project changes, and then save and close the enterprise project.

    Are you certain that you want to delete and not simply inactivate? If so, you need to track down the assignments for which the resource is the assignment owner and remove them from these tasks.

    How to "rack down the assignments for which the resource is the assignment owner and remove them from these tasks" ?

     

    I have the familiar problem in Project Server 2010.

     

    When I try to delete the user DOMAIN\Administrator I received the message:

    "

    The specified Resources and Users could not be deleted because of the following errors:
    • DOMAIN\Administrator : The resource is the assignment owner for Test4 and cannot be deleted.

    "

    I deleted Test 4 project with PWA site and deleted also from Draft and Archived databases.

    And checked the user in Resource Assignments. This has NO assignments, NO tasks.
