Hi Petr,

This produces ...

ipa group-show XXXXX --all --raw
  dn: cn=XXXXX,cn=groups,cn=accounts,dc=local,dc=com
  cn: XXXXX
  description: User private group for XXXXX
  gidnumber: 799830053
  ipaUniqueID: 3b8e0ec8-58c4-11e6-806d-005056015864
  mepManagedBy: uid=XXXXX,cn=users,cn=accounts,dc=local,dc=com
  objectClass: posixgroup
  objectClass: ipaobject
  objectClass: mepManagedEntry
  objectClass: top

We do have some replication problems at the moment - two recreated
replicas currently have two RUVs so this could this be how the user
delete completed without the corresponding group?

Thanks

Bob
