VCOPS: Cannot import LDAP users

When trying to import users from LDAP I'm getting:

One or more users already exist and haven't been imported.

This issue isn't new and in fact there are multiple blog post can be found (like Zsoldier's Tech Blog) and there is a good KB (2017641). However, the KB notes a point 5:

delete from uistate where userid=10;
delete from useraccount_setting where userid=10;
delete from useraccount userid=10;

Besides the fact the last query is wrong (it needs a 'where'), I've found it much faster to just delete everything above userid 1 (userid 1 = admin account, which I wouldn't touch), granted: only if you havn't imported LDAP users already.

delete from uistate where userid > '1';
delete from useraccount_setting where userid > '1';
delete from alertcontrol where userid > '1';
delete from useraccount where description like 'VC%';

Saved me from deleting like 30 x 4 individual queries Cool.
