Understood, and that will be handled appropriately as we encounter it
moving forward, I appreciate the professional advice on this more than
I'm likely expressing.
My only continuing issue using this script (and I believe my last
comment on this thread before today) is why the script completes its
task (correctly from what i can tell), but still reports that it
failed according to it's result codes that you gather for the check?

Also, as I continued to test how well it will work with regards to
expiring leases as they happen naturally (shortened lease time to 10
min), the delete function fails as it can't find the records with the
given args (Log link below):

Thanks Again,
