I transferred users from the old to new Red Hat server.   Users with their own directories can't log in.  
If I created user with useradd , there are no problems.  

If I try to remove existing user using eserdel I get error Segmentation fault.

Hello!
how did you do the transfer?
What was the version of you old and new RHs?
what is the error message when you try to login with an old user account?
Do you know what type of password file encoding you had and you have now?
Regards,
t.

Attached is output from pwck (pwck.txt) .    Grpck allowed me to correct single error, so there is no output now.

To move users I followed instructions from:

Thanks.

Red Hat versions are both the same (4).
Login is SSH and there is no error displaying when you try to log in (just that Authentication failed).
