How would i write down sequence of each USER, so this won't happen
next time I upgrade this  Box ??

ls -n /home

See the user and group numbers instead of names?  Use the same numbers
when creating new users. You can manually pick numbers when you create
new users, or if the IDs all go upwards sequentially from 500, simply
create the first user who has ID 500, then create the next user and
they'll get the next highest number, you just have to pick the names in
the right sequence.

Right now the first number doesn't start at 500, it starts at 502.
How do you manully put the numbers in as you add users:groups ?

man useradd , its the -u option as I recall.


you can specify it in the GUI for Users and Groups.

Thanks very much for the info.


Or make a copy of /etc/passwd, /etc/group and /etc/shadow before the upgrade. Then you can cut/paste all the pertinent info into those files after the upgrade so the users get the same UID, GID and password.
