Unknown AD user under VMWare OU

Hi,
I'm cleaning up my 2003 AD of unsuser username for sercurity purposes and there is one OU called VMWare that as one user in it called rew ... no description or anything ... it only show that it's in the domain user group and uses an old login script....
Not even and admin...

I would like to disable it and see if anything "stop working"  like I did with other weird username that were created before I came but this one is under VMWARE so I'm more hesitant... I wouldn't want it to be required to boot up my DC controller which is a vm machine for exemple....

In VMware 4: is there a place or places where we input usernames for any reasons?
tx!

Check your VMWare groups and any vCenter service accounts as well as any AD service accounts.
Check any groups that use is a member of.
If the user does not appear anywhere or has no associated groups then you should be OK.

Disable it for a short while to see if there are any issues, you may have to leave it disabled for a few days to really see.

Lock the user first.
rew is not vmware abbreviation.

Also, try this in Powershell, should list all groups user is a member of:
Get-ADPrincipalGroupMembership rew | select name
