The code is:

user { 'test' :
          ensure => 'present',
          home => '/home/test'

The account gets created but not the home directory. Do I have to create a separate code for the directory creation of the RAL is issue?

user { 'test' :
          ensure => 'absent',
          home => '/home/test',
          managehome => true,

using the attribute managehome will create the home directory when you create a user and will remove the remove directory when you use ensure => 'absent'
