Can you please provide the broker, mcollective and platform (node) logs for a request that fails with this error?

Snippet from the broker log --> pastebin.test.redhat.com/159283
Snippet from the mcollective log --> http://pastebin.test.redhat.com/159286

Providing snippets of logs from the broker and mcollective in the previous comment. Seems like useradd is failing because it is unable to lock /etc/passwd .

--- Additional comment from Mrunal Patel on 2013-08-19 17:13:03 EDT ---

Most likely some of these files were left behind by a crashing useradd/userdel operation.
