Moving users to new file server

Greetings, I work for a school and we have Apple file servers (10.6). We want to move students' home folders to a new file server (still using 10.6). I was wondering if there's a way to do a bulk move of the students' folders to the new server and change how OpenDir points to the folds? I'm being told that it has to be done one at a time and I'm a bit skeptical.

    The simplest method is to transfer everything to a new server when setting up the new server.

    Alternatively, you can manually migrate just what you want. Check out starting page 30 of the manual for details.
