> The unix user sync currently reads /etc/passwd /etc/groups . This is often not a reflection
of users and groups available on a system especially when nsswitch is configured (eg. sssd,
ldap etc).
> Secondly in some cases groups will contain user names that are not returned with "getent
passwd", especially "external users" and it is required to add these using the group information.
