Failed with

ERROR(exception): Failed to remove user "NUMBER37chris" - Unable to find 
user "NUMBER37chris"

but I managed with

samba-tool user delete "NUMBER37\chris"

However, as soon as I logged in via ssh the account was recreated

I don't have any such lines. Could it be this in the PAM config that is 
causing the problem:

auth    optional            pam_smbpass.so migrate
