Automatic user migration and new users



I’m implementing Automatic User Migration and seem to have run into a weird issue. I have everything setup and working to migrate existing users, but when I try to create a new user from the management interface, or from the lock UI in the application, I get an error. Specifically, the error is the following from the logs. Can you not create new users when you are doing automatic user migration?
