Use the list_pending_zone_users command to check Active Directory and return a list of pending import users for the currently selected zone. Pending import users are user profiles that have been imported from Linux or UNIX computers, but not yet mapped to any Active Directory user. If executed in a script, this command outputs its list to stdout so that the output appears in the shell where the script is executed. The command does not return a Tcl list back to the executing script. Use get_pending_zone_users to return a Tcl list.
