Grab the UID and GID from the master machine and port them to the others
Example ->

Machine 1:
cat /etc/passwd |grep ^johan

Grab the UID and the GID (assuming they are possibly different)
Example output: johan:x:1000:1000:Johan,,,:/home/johan:/bin/bash
1000 is the number you want to grab, the second 1000 is the GID

Machine 2:
usermod -u [UID] johan
groupmod -g [GID] johan
