Remove other invalid accounts

You should also skip migration for users who have left the organization and profiles that contain invalid data. Scan the data set for user accounts and groups that are locked or indicate they were created for testing. You should also check for profiles that contain obvious errors or legacy information no longer used.

In some cases, you may need to contact workstation or application owners directly to determine whether a profile should be skipped for migration. For example, assume the /etc/group file contains an entry for clowns with krusty, bozo, and tadams as members and there are valid user profiles for those three users. You may suspect the clowns group was created for some local testing, and therefore, not a candidate for migration. However, there’s no definitive indication that the clowns group should be skipped without more information.
