deleting the group type of which it was part resulted in dropping the
table administration_info.

The group type and name was 'Reservation System Uber Users' and

The following sql result from "select * from administration_info" :

The following database exception was raised while the server was
attempting to satisfy your request:

ora8.c:903:ora_exec: error in `OCIStmtExecute ()': ORA-00942:
table or view does not exist SQL: select * from administration_info

The table administration_info is created automatically by the system to store information for the default ACS group type 'administration'. If you delete a group type, then its _info table is deleted as well. Try going to /www/doc/sql/user-groups.sql and looking for the calls that create these default tables and rows.
