Re: Migrating users from LINUX to HPUX10.20

The first step is to compare the user and group ids
between the two systems. You can then plan a
strategy for moving the users.

The approach you need to take is dependent on
the number of users on each system.

Home directories can be tarred on one system and
untarred on the other. You can script resetting
the ownership on each home directory.

Review the .profile type files as these will likely need
editing due to difference in shells and X-Windows
