Hello Rich,
Thanks for the help. This does remove the group so I can add the user back.
But when I try to ssh, as that user, to the machines that the user logged on 
before "ipa user-del", I get "permission denied".
I removed the user's home directory because it still belongs to the deleted 
UID:GID. After that I still get "permission denied".
Any suggestions?
Thanks again,
George
