CVS user data transfer

We have created a new cvs server with Red Hat Linux Enterprise edtion, we transfered the project data on the new cvs server successfully. The old cvs server was Red hat Linux 8.0. The problem arose when we wanted to transfer the users. Each project has Leader for authentication. Leader user id is in upper case. When we tried to transfer the leader to the new cvs server it was not recognsing the leader for the project. Hence were not able to login to the project. But when we change it to the lower case it is working fine.
It is not possible to make above change for all the projects manully as it is huge database. Is there any way where we can change all the users in uppercase to lowercase and transfer to the new cvs server.
thanks.

First make sure you have used up2date or yum to get your new installation up to the newest versions and patches. Old linux versions only allowed usernames with no caps, but newer versions should be able to cope with caps. Possibly your enterprise version still has some old modules.

If that doesn't help, use usermod to change the usernames. It uses the following syntax:

usermod -l newusername OLDUserName

Also, this Q isn't really in the correct TA, it should be in one of the linux areas. If you want me to, I can move it to the linux TA for you.
