How to cleanup etc/users folder on search head cluster


I've got a lot of LDAP users who no longer exist (500+ folders in /etc/users). What's the proper way to clean this? If I just delete the folder won't the search head cluster just resync it from the captain's running configuration?

Also, someone pushed these using the Deployer when we migrated to 8.x. If I remove all user folders from the /etc/shcluster/users folder of the Deployer will anything bad happen next time I push? I have no desire to manage user settings with the Deployer; just push shcluster apps.
