Thanks for your reply. Rumour has it, one day an admin who was off sick passed his credentials over the phone to a less senior employee to solve an urgent problem. Thereafter, everyone including plant operators knew the admin username and password.
Yes, in my trade (engineering) the admin credentials become common knowledge. It should not happen but t it does.
The problem happens because the user who wiped his/her rights out should not be in the page they are in, so when they save they get the exception.
My thoughts on it so far rather than throwing an exception just redirect to the home page and an admin should re-create the admin account from the database. Or create an admin account than can't be altered and always has "Edit" capability only; and that means, another access type that does not include "none".
