EVPM - Skip lines with errors

Hi All,
 
Not really a solution that needs solving more of a general query.
 
I have created a EVPM script that will grant access to archives for specific users.
 
It looks likes this:
 
[Directory]
DirectoryComputerName = EVServer
SiteName = EVSite
 
[ArchivePermissions]
ArchiveName = Archive Name 1
GrantAccess = read write delete, domain\user1
 
[ArchivePermissions]
ArchiveName = Archive Name 2
GrantAccess = read write delete, domain\leaver
 
[ArchivePermissions]
ArchiveName = Archive Name 3
GrantAccess = read write delete, domain\user3
 
I save it as a .ini in unicode and run it as normal...

However, I get errors similiar to:
 
Line number in error:   11
Section in error:   ArchivePermissions
Attribute in error: GrantAccess
Value in error:     read write delete, domain\leaver
Reason:     Could not lookup the account: domain\leaver
Error parsing the config (.ini) file

Now, I appreciate that the user I am trying to give permissions to has left and is no longer in the AD. That is not my issue.

My issue is, why does EVPM have to bomb out? Can it not just skip passed this attempt and go onto the next in line.

In production I have a ~3000 user ini script and I don't want to have to go through it finding the next error and taking out that line, processing it again... taking out that line etc.

I can tidy up my script before running it. But it seems like something so simple, that if it is not a fatal error, it can skip that command.

My question is, is it possible?

Could it be looked into for future releases?

Cheers
Chay

Oh Ok, does that mean there is 100% no way I can add a line somewhere that will skip lines?

Will follow your advice. Cheers

Sorry, but not that I am aware of.
