I just need to do this for one user. I have a request to trace somebody from the our service provider, via our library resource team.

Not sure what you're saying, the aacli doesn't take ePTId as an input. Are you suggesting to loop over all userids with the aacli?
That would work but I'm guessing will be /much/ slower than simply finding and re-implementing the algorithm used in the generation of the values and doing the looping outside of repeated JVM startups and teardowns for every single subject.
