Removing Invalid Users
My webMethods Server cannot recognize users who are deleted from a directory service or moved in a directory service. Such users are regarded as invalid users.
As system administrator, you can use the Cleanup_InvalidUsers utility to remove invalid users from My webMethods Server. In addition to removing invalid users, the Cleanup_InvalidUsers utility removes memberships of invalid users from roles in My webMethods Server.
You should run the Cleanup_InvalidUsers utility before you run the UserDirectory_UpdateUUID utility. For more information about the UserDirectory_UpdateUUID utility, see Configuring Universally Unique Identifier (UUID) for Users.
If you have a large user base, running the Cleanup_InvalidUsers utility might take a long time. You should run the Cleanup_InvalidUsers utility at a time that is suitable for system maintenance.

1. Take a backup of My webMethods Server database.
2. Navigate to Folders > Administrative Folders > Administration Dashboard > Configuration > Install Administration > Extras > UserDirectory > UserDirectory_UpdateUUIDPortlet.war.
3. Click Install Component.
