Re: modify UID

Bear in mind that you will probably also have to do a find with -exec to chown any files owned by this user. Man find for details.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.

Re: modify UID

hello,
yes... the files are still using the old uid number so you should run:
find / -user oldUID -exec chown newUID {} \;
