I have a ghost user on my diskstation, which was probably created years ago when I was doing things I probably shouldn't. The user has a home directory and an entry in /etc/passwd, but does not show in the user control panel. The Synology OS does not seem to have anything like usermod or userdel.

So, how do I fix this?
 
Solution
I would start here...
synouser {--help}
synouser {--add} username passwd full name expired email app privilege
synouser {--del} username...
synouser {--rename} old username new username
synouser {--modify} username passwd full name expired email
