Hi,

I have made an image of my linux set up and installed it on a new machine. It appears to have worked but the user I had made in the original linux setup did not copy of when I made the image. Can I zip the original user's folder and transfer it over to the new linux machine? - How?

Thanks,
waffe

S you can move all the user folder from server1:/home - server2:/home using scp.
then user usermod on server2 to change the user's home dir to /home/user1 etc


From Server1
#scp -r /home/* test@server2:/home/
On Server2
#usermod -d /home/user1 user1

Open in new window
