I have ubuntu server running and CVS is installed on it. I'll be managing CVS with the Webmin tool. I'm migrating the server to the new ubuntu edition. I could easily migrate the CVS repository to the new machine but how could I migrate/export CVS Users?. Anybody has any idea?

Hi!

If you didn't had the cvs users in the cvsroot (you can have a file inside /cvs/CVSROOT/ called passwd which can contain your usernames and passwords) you probably had them in your Ubuntu user database.

Here are instructions how to migrate all users from one Ubuntu machine to another: http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/howto-move-migrate-user-accounts-old-to-new-server/

Remember to backup before trying the migrate!

Regards, Tobias

Hi!

Excellent!. Actually just using rsync for repositories copied along with cvs users and pointing the cvs users file is awesome!!. Thanks for the link!
