Copy /etc/passwd /etc/shadow /etc/group
I think that only with that will work, but be careful if your RH6.0 have
shadowing or not. Check if in the redhat exists the file /etc/shadow, if
doesn't install the shadowing package or put the passwords of shadow in

Subject: [suse-security] copying users/pwd from one box to another

hi, I'm running some servers and I would like to change one of the server
with another box, that is more "up-to-date" regarding the CPU/Memory/Disk
and OS... The old box is run by a RH6.0 and the new one will be a SuSE
7.0... the question is, how can I
move all the users if i tell you that i don't want the passwords to be
changed... The box existed long before I was here, so i don't know every
password (especially our customers password). Is it possible to copy one
password file from one box to another
in order to keep the same passwords for all the users ?.... and is there a
sure way to transfer all users once for all whithout any doubt ?...
