We were in the final stages of migrating FreeIPA from 3.0 to 4.2.  During the 
migration, both the 3.0 replicas and the 4.2 replicas were in the replica pool. 
 User account changes made to 3.0 would replicate to 4.2 just fine, but changes 
wouldn’t replicate from 4.2 to 3.0.

Admins should have been aware of this and performing all changes to the 3.0 
replicas.  However 2 accounts were created on the 4.2 replicas and then also 
added to the 3.0 replicas.  This resulted in a replication conflict and each 
user account has a duplicate with the same username but different UIDs.

I want to delete the duplicates.  “ipa user-del” will not take the UID as an 
identifier, only the username.  Using just the username fails with an error due 
to the duplicate accounts.

The old 3.0 replicas have all been removed from the pool and decommissioned.  
It would be tons of work to bring them back into production.

Any thoughts on how to fix this issue?
