Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
>>> cs = self.conn.root.cimv2.Linux_ComputerSystem.first_instance()
>>> lams = self.conn.root.cimv2.LMI_AccountManagementService.first_instance()

2, mkdir /home/someuser
3, try to create user

there is no error and I can recognize that user is created. But there is just some warning.

Thanks for the report. I will take a look.
Comment 3 Roman Rakus 2013-09-04 10:54:30 EDT
Return values of methods should be reworked as well as status codes.
I will add several return codes with descriptions, so the caller should know the state of the system after the call.

Fix pushed upstream.
