moving users

Greetings,

        I have an Alpha2100 running Tru64 v4.0g (enhanced security) and I'm
building a duplicate system.  What is the correct way to move 300 users
from the old system to the new one retaining their passwords, uids,
etc.?

In addition to doing all of the things you'd normally do
to move users from one system to another (moving/copying
home directories, copying entries from /etc/passwd and
/etc/group, etc.)  you can do the following to copy the
user entries from the auth.db on one system to another:

   on first system:  #/usr/tcb/bin/edauth -g > auth.out

copy auth.out to new system and edit it to remove any
system accounts that you don't want/need copied from
the first system.

   on second system:  #edauth -s < auth.out

Note that you have to do this AFTER setting up the
accounts in the /etc/passwd file, or it won't work.

1. Move user and mailbox from Redhat to Solaris

If you're not using MD5 passwords, I think just a simple tar will do the job!

NT tries to do almost everything UNIX does, but fails - miserably.

The use of Windoze cripples the mind; its use should, therefore, be
regarded as a criminal offence.  (With apologies to Edsger W. Dijkstra)
