move users' passwds from one server to another server

Hi,

 

I need to migrate one server to another one, and I ask if its possible to migrate the users and users's passwd between to B.11.23 U ia64 servers.

 

The servers are in trusted mode.

 

Thanks a lot of!

Carmen.

Users are not too bad ;-)

Yes, it can be done.  You have to be sure to migrate both the /etc/passwd entries and the /tcb/file/auth/[A-Za-z]/* files that contain the users information and encrypted passwords.

Hi,

 

For migrating the tcb files you can  use the below script

 

Please re-check once before doing this

 

cut -f 1 -d : /etc/passwd   > /tmp/userlist  ===== > this will create a file contains the list of users..
### Here we can edit this file (/tmp/userlist) we can remove all unwanted user names########

[65]> for i in $(cat /tmp/userlist)
> do
> grep -w $i /tmp/userlist > /tmp/filter
> a=`cut -c 1 /tmp/filter`
> cp -p -r /tcb/files/auth/$a/$i /tmp/final/
> done

####### /tmp/final contains only the passwd details of reqd users ###############
