Rob, Thanks for your reply.
My predecessor had wrote code to pull user entries from the realm in order to verify that: 1.) A home directory is created (if not already) and apply the correct ownership; 2.) A work directory (Lustre) is created (if not already) and apply the correct ownership. Given what you've said, I'll perform a work-around within the code to get a list of active users from a database table vs. the current method.
