I have a Redhat Linux 7.2 installed on my system. I am trying to migrate the entire setup to another machine. The new machine has Redhat Enterprise 3.0 installed. I just want to know if the following procedure will work.
append the existing password files to the new machines.
append the existin group file to the new machine.
append the existing shadow file to the new machine.
Check for duplicates and remove them. Make necessary changes in uid's and gid's.
Back up mysql database and restore it on the new machine.
Copy CVS repository and change ownership accordingly on the newmachine.
Kindly advise on this.
