RE: copying user password to another machine



Title: RE: copying user password to another machine

This has worked for me in the past.  That's all you need to do as long as the user already exists.  You should create the user and then copy and paste the line...

Subject: copying user password to another machine



Hi all,
Got a quick question.

I have a user in a RHEL 3 WS. I want to give him access to another machine
running RH 9 and want to let him use the same password he uses for the RHEL
machine. But I don't know / don't remember his current password. Can I just
copy the line that contains his username in /etc/shadow in RHEL 3 machine,
and stick it to the /etc/shadow file in the second machine (RH 9) ? anything
else?

Thanks.
RDB
