Ubuntu Servers :: Migrate Users To New Installation?

Jun 23, 2011

How do I migrate my user list to a new server installation? I thought that just copying /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow would be enough. I recently tried upgrading a lightweight bazaar server to 11.04, and the upgrade crashed. I had to perform a new installation of Ubuntu to recover operation of the system. I installed on a different hard drive. I had a dozen other people with user logins, so that they can get or modify bazaar repositories.

The new installation is running, and I can read all of the files on my old system's / drive. I tried copying the /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow files onto my new /etc -- but that did not seem to work. (When I looked using the System->Administration->Users-and-Groups GUI tool, there were no users visible, so I restored the old files.) What I intended to do was to clone the /etc and /home trees over to the new system. What am I missing?

Fedora Servers :: Migrate Local Users And Sendmail Mailboxes?

Apr 21, 2010

I found 2 previous posts, one from 2005 and one from 2006. The 2005 post was not very helpful and the 2006 threads are not exactly what I was expecting. So I wanted to ask the question to be sure. I have already stood up the new fedora 12 server. The old server is also fedora 12. I need to migrate local users and sendmail mailboxes. In the past couple of years the environment was small enough to create a copy of the users and then have the users mail themselves, but I want to start migrating users/mailboxes properly.

On a unix level I am a jr admin, but I have extensive senior level experience as a windows engineer and network engineer. I do feel comfortable with using the unix command line, but usually operate the unix systems thru webmin because I am not familular with more complex commands. Ideally a software solution to migrate users and/or mailboxes from one server to another is what I am looking for, but in leiu of a software solution I still need to migrate user accounts and their mailboxes. LDAP is not in place, but if the process becomes easier with LDAP I am willing to do what is needed to set up LDAP. (I have no previous experience setting up LDAP)

I do not want to change my mail server from sendmail to different software. At least right now. Both systems are up and running. They can connect to each other via public ipv4 address' only. The new server has already been installed and configured with all the software to match the old server. How do I migrate users and sendmail mailboxes from one fedora 12 server to another fedora 12 server?

Debian Configuration :: Migrate The Users Without Resetting Their Passwords?

Aug 13, 2010

I have an old server running CentOS 5. The encription method used was the default MD5 for the shadow file. I would like to migrate the server to Debian Squeeze which uses SHA512. I have already copied the passwd, group and shadow file with the user accounts information but the Debian machine doesn't let the users login. I have already looked in the pam files to make it accept the MD5 encryption without any luck. how can i migrate the users without resetting their passwords?

Software :: Import Windows Users / Passwords Into Openldap Server - Ldap Migrate Migration?

Nov 18, 2009

I am looking for ideas for getting windows users into an ldap server. I am currently running a Linux server for my department and need to create an LDAP server which mirrors the username/password information for all of us as they are stored in the windows server here. I have the openldap server up and running on Ubuntu 8.04 and it works great; I now need to find some way to import user info into this from windows. I've seen discussions of using ldifde.exe to export the AD users into an ldif file. Is this the simplest way to go about it?

Our Linux server is currently providing us with much needed services using apache, and apache is authenticating using LDAP to our windows server (Using our windows username / password is required functionality). This windows server has some problem which causes it to delay for inordinate amounts of time between authentication requests and responses. The situation is such that this problem will not be addressed by IT staff. However, I have control over the Linux server so I am looking to just mirror the windows server on an LDAP server of my own. I could get away with updating the passwords in the Linux server.

Ubuntu Servers :: Migrate SVN Repository From Dapper To Lucid?

Sep 28, 2010

I have a (very old) svn repositoy on an ubunta dapper machine. I want to switch to another machine with lucid running. I simply want to "copy" the whole repository to the new machine. I've tried several ways, but the most succesful one was to do a dump on the old machine, copy the file to the new machine and do a load there. The repository has about 28.000 revisions. At revision 3130 it stopped with an error saying some path was not in UTF-8. I tried running a UTF-8 migrationtool on the dapper machine but this told me all files were UTF-8 compatible already. I am really stuck, even a two and a half hour google session didn't provide any answer.

edit: more specific, the error I get is:


svnadmin: Path 'beginofpath?218tabase' is not in UTF-8

The end should have been /database instead of ?218tabase. When I look in the revision on the dapper machine this path shows a square at that location, so this is wrong also. When I try to open the dumpdile in gedit I get an errormessage saying:


Could not open the file /home/usrname/repo.svndump using the Unicode (UTF-8 ) character encoding

When I change the encoding I get the same error for that encoding.

Fedora Servers :: Migrate System To New Hardware?

Jul 11, 2009

I have a working system running some older fedora, and new hardware running a fresh, new fedora install. I want to basically transfer my computer's "soul" into the new system ( user's stuff, firewall configuration, the various server & security configurations, etc.) and basically any customizations and non-hardware related packages installed that weren't part of the standard fedora install process. I'm looking for a magical easy button I can push to do all this (pause for laughter). Essentially, I want to "upgrade", but starting with a clean install on a different computer with different hardware. I have a vague idea of what needs to happen, like copying the /etc/*.conf files, /home directory, etc. but this seems very tedious, and the likelihood of me forgetting or overlooking something is 100%, and copying over entire disks or partitions wholesale is not necessary, and does not work for this scenario. I need to place/merge just the right files/directories in just the right places with surgical precision. Is there a utility for this? Maybe a way to diff the packages of the 2 computers and install the difference? Or at the very least some sort of checklist that could be scripted for my system? I'm desperately trying to avoid the pain, human misery & suffering encountered getting everything in the 1st system going.

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Migrate To Kubuntu

Jun 3, 2010

I have recently tried to migrate to kubuntu. I am reading manuals and studying the matter right now, trying to find help via googling and stuff, but for some (i suppose, trivial) matters i just cannot seem to get help and reading manuals leads me nowhere.I am sorry if my questions seem trivial or are answered in manpages or on this forum, i tried searching and didnt found...

1) how to correctly install something, for which a "Stable Source Release" is provided. Especially when options are to be set

2) how to get knowledge about what version of something (in this case, ntfs-3g) is installed in my system, and what kind of options were set when it was installed

3) what exactly happens when i type "make" withing a folder i just extracted my "stable source release" gzip to?

4) what exactly happens when i type "make install", how does it know where to put what files, make changes to my system etc...

5) how to undo what it (make install) has done (because i had already corrupted one installation of kubuntu by simply doing an unsuccessfull make install of an x-fi driver package and then an alsa package)

6) when i install something with "apt-get install <packagename>" does the downloading of "source stable" happens and "make install" is ran for me, or something else?

7) Do gui package managers just do the "apt-get install <package name> " for me when i check to install something or do they do something extra aside from that? Like synaptic?

8) when i install something with the same name, but different version, what happens? like if i do an "apt-get install XYZ" of version 2.0 when i already have XYZ of version 1.0 installed, will 1.0 get overwritten by 2.0 or will i have both installed in my system?

9) how do i know which "options" are used when i do apt-get install of a package? for example, if package says "build with this option to achieve this result" how do i know if this option is on or off or can i control it when i apt-get install this package?

10) if i installed something with "make install" - can i later uninstal if with apt-get uninstall package or i have to somehow manually remove files? what is the common procedure?

11) if i installed something with "make install" - can i later upgrade it with "apt-get"?

12) why i read in books, like for example here (http://rute.2038bug.com/index.html.gz), that i should partition my disk in multiple partitions:

- one for swap
- one for / file system
- one for /usr
- one for /tmp
- one for /var
- remaining space goes for /home

because then if one gets overflown, full or broken, it wont affect the others, and you can afford to loose some and it eases the recovery of system in case of a fault
but then, kubuntu installs itself just in two partitions, swap and the rest? Is multiple partitions scheme outdated or?

13) Why if i ctrl-alt-f1 out of my KDE and run kate (any gui program), it says "cannot connect to X server" while xserver is indeed running on my pc (otherwise how would kde work?)

14) what is under ctrl-alt-f12, f11 etc, it is a blank screen with a cursor in top-left

15) is there a way to set the vga mode for tty's that are accessible with ctrl+alt+f(1-6) to 80x50 (i prefer that over the 80x25 that is set by default there)
i've read that you could do that in lilo config files you just do vga=extended
but now kubuntu uses grub so... how do i do that?

16) i've read that "linux is good because you can shut down an app that hangs your pc by going to terminal and sending a kill signal, something you cannot do in windows because windows has no way to escape a frozen gui"

But when i had a way to test that in practice (today i tried some decoration scheme for my KDE and it froze my desktop) i found out i have a freaking lot of processes running (with ps -A) and.... well, what should i have done to unfreeze my desktop? And how do i know what exactly hangs my PC in order to terminate it? (like in windows - you very frequently have a nearly dead non-responding pc, but doing CtRL-ALT-DEL shows that "system idle" has about 3/4 of your processor time and there is no problem with memory consumtion either, yet system barely can respond to your input")

17) i've heard and read about "linux needs no reboot" but in practice, installing nvidia drivers requires reboot, for example. So, is it really true or there is a way to make those drivers go without rebooting, they just tell me to reboot because i'm considered a newbie who doesnt know that "linux does not need reboot"?

18) KDE is very annoyingly preventing me from doing anything in "LEAVE" menu without a 30second-confirmation box (shutting down in 30 s...)... and i dont seem to see any settings for that in the gui... same goes for asking me to close my tty's - can it do it by itself? what config file should i edit?

19) As i read, linux filesystem philosophy is that settings go into /etc and that everything is a file, so, in order to change anything in my system it boils down to editing a file. Now, why do the files are so scattered? For example, why does alsa config file live as a hidden file (starts with .) in my home, and a file to set up mounting behavior lies in /var/lib/polkit-1/localauthority/10-vendor.d/com.ubuntu.desktop.pkla or /usr/share/polkit-1/actions/org.freedesktop.udisks.policy.

Do only system apps like mount use /etc for their configs, and how do i generally know where to look if i want to change something (like in windows, i'd go look in the application path, in my user folder's corresponding folders - my documents, application data etc and in registry).

20) As i read, linux ideology is about program scattering istelf all over the file system. Countrary to windows where program occupies a folder in which it nests its own folder tree (like data, sound, themes), a linux is said to put binaries into /bin, configs into /etc and so on. What happens if programs are called the same or use same files? For example, if two people make a program with a same name or use same file (for example, alot of windows programs used to use settings.ini to store user settings, if that would be in a same folder...?) or make a same short name for their program (like a long program name abbreviated to three letters for simplicity, but what if two programs have same abbreviations?).

Ubuntu :: Migrate Emails And Setting From One TB Installation To Another?

I'm trying to migrate my emails and (at least) account settings from Thunderbird 2 that is installed on my main machine here, and move them to another Windows-based installation of Thunderbird.

I tried searching here and Mozilla.org, but can find no answer. Since the source Thunderbird installation is the one installed on my Ubuntu machine, I thought I'd start here. (plus, I get better answers here)

Ubuntu Installation :: Migrate To 10 Beta From Gentoo?

I'm just trying to migrate to Ubuntu 10 Beta from Gentoo. One option in the installer intrigued me. It said something like (from memory) "Use password to log in and decrypt my home directory".

What happens behind the scenes when I choose this? (How) can I enable this later on? (I didn't activate it because I wanted to migrate my Gentoo user's home as painless as possible.)

Ubuntu Installation :: Migrate 10.04 Installed On Machine To .VDI For Virtual Box HDD

I was using a Sony laptop with Ubuntu 10.04 installed on the machine. I have just bought a Mac and I will be using Ubuntu 10.04 as my primary development OS by virtualizing it using VirtualBox.Now, my requirement is, I had a near perfect development environment setup on my Ubuntu box and I don't want to install the packages, apps, setting etc again on my VirtualBox VM.

I know there are ways to export apps, setting etc, but is there some app which will actually create a VDI disk for my VirtualBox which, when I plug in to my VirtualBox, I will get the old Ubuntu on my VM.

Ubuntu Installation :: RAID / LVM Cmds To Migrate To Larger Drives?

Sep 27, 2010

how to migrate my whole server to larger hard drives (i.e. I'd like to replace my four 1TB's with four 2TB's, for a new total of 4TB instead of 2TB)... I'll post the output from everything (relevant) that I can think of in code tags below.

I'd like to end up with much larger /home and /public partitions. When I first set up raid and then LVM it seemed like it wouldn't be too hard once this day arrived, but I've had little luck finding help online for upgrades and resizing versus simply rebuilding from a failure. Specifically, I figure I have to mirror the data over to the new drives one at a time, but I can't figure out how to build the raid partitions on the new disks in order to have more space (yet mirror with the old drive that has a smaller partition)... don't the raid partitions have to be the same size to mirror?

Ubuntu Server (karmic) 2.6.31-22-server #65-Ubuntu SMP; fully updated

OpenSUSE Install :: How To Migrate 11.3 Installation To Another Computer

Feb 13, 2011

I want to do an apparently simple task but since I migrated to Opensuse I found no way to do it. I have an enhanced install of Opensuse 11.3, where I added softwares from different sources according to my needs. Now that it's working fine I would like to make the same kind of install for two friends of mine and for a virtual machine on Virtualbox. In Ubuntu I used remastersys and in few minutes it created a live DVD with all the content of my system, and all of this offline, without downloading anything else. In Opensuse the only resources that most resemble that are Kiwi and Suse Studio.

But it seems that in both the softwares must be downloaded from repositories online. That would not work for me because it would take a very long time to find out all the packages I installed, from what repositories and my internet connection is very slow so I could not do it all at once. I tried Clonezilla but I was not able to restore the content of my Opensuse partition to a different machine. It gave me error messages, didn't make the restore and I didn't find a solution anywhere online. How can I transfer the content of my Opensuse installation to another computer without having to use online resources?

Ubuntu Servers :: Migrate WebDAV To New WebDAV?

Feb 2, 2011

I have a WebDAV folder (complete folder hierarchy in fact) currently managed by SAP's KM module. Long story short: it's in Windows, it's slow, I hate it.

I want to migrate the hole tree to my brand new Ubuntu Server 10.04 with a functional WebDAV server I just finished configuring. It connects to LDAP for user authentication, it's fast, it works like a charm.

Do you guys know any way I can transfer/migrate files from the Windows WebDAV to to Ubuntu WebDAV? The only thing that is important to keep is file security properties. Both WebDAVs have the same user database: our corporate Active Directory.

Ubuntu Servers :: Synchronizing Users Across Servers?

Oct 1, 2010

I wonder if other people have this problem. sometimes I need to duplicate most or all of a server from one machine to another. part where I most tend to have issues is with recreating the users. Sometimes the UIDs don't match up because of differences between the two systems, which gives funky results, like files owned by the wrong user.

Or, sometimes, I just need to create the same 10 users on x number of machines, and it's tedious to do this 10x times. Plus, then, if you need to change a password or delete a user, you have to do it x times.Any recommendations on how to centralize users/auth?

Ubuntu Installation :: Migrate Wubi 10.04 Install To A Full Install?

Mar 19, 2011

What is the easiest and/or safest way to migrate my Wubi 10.04 install to a full install? Currently, my Dell XPS M1530 is currently dual-booting Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and Windows Vista Home Premium, and I've decided after using Windows a total of around 4 hours over the past 6 months that I can probably let it go. So, I don't need Windows anymore and I believe I'm ready for a full install of Ubuntu. Though, I probably will wait for 11.04 to come out first.

A few ways I've thought of already are: 1) Find an external hard drive to put the Wubi files on. 2) Upload files to an storage website. 3) Temporarily put the Wubi files onto another computer (Windows). All these meaning I would then wipe my harddrive and install Ubuntu from a CD. And by "files", I mean Documents, Pictures, Downloads, etc.

EDIT: deleting all my applications, because OpenOffice.org won't reinstall on my computer due to dependency issues while attempting to install LibreOffice. So a fresh install would be nice.

Ubuntu Installation :: Migrate Working Single Disk System To Existing RAID Array Using Disk UUIDs

Aug 1, 2010

I had done a new lucid install to a 1 TB RAID 1 array using the alternate CD a few weeks back. I messed up that system trying to some hardware working that lucid doesn't have drivers for yet, so I gave up on it and reinstalled to a single 80 GB disk that I now want to move over to the RAID array.

I moved all of the existing files on the array to a single folder, then copied all of the folders from the 80 GB disk over to the array with permissions and symlinks (minus the contents of /proc and /sys, which I created empty).

These are the commands I used:


p -a -d -R -v -t /media/raid_array /b*
cp -a -d -R -v -t /media/raid_array /d*
cp -a -d -R -v -t /media/raid_array /e*
cp -a -d -R -v -t /media/raid_array /h*


I tried to change fstab to use the 689a... for root, but when I try to boot, it's still trying to open /dev/disk/by-uuid/412d...

So then I booted from the single disk again and chrooted into the array, then ran update-initramfs -u. I got 3 "grep: /proc/modules: No such file or directory" errors, and "cat: /proc/cmdline: No such file or directory"- so I created directory /proc/modules, created an empty file /proc/cmdline, and ran the initramfs update again. Then I tried to shut down, which hung (probably because I was doing all of this from a terminal window in Gnome), so I killed the power after a couple of minutes.

It's still trying to use /dev/disk/by-uuid/412d... to boot.

What am I missing? I assume I just have to change the UUID to mount as root, but I don't know how.

Ubuntu Servers :: Quickbooks Server For 6 Users?

I need to setup a simple server to make available Quickbooks accounting data to just a few stations. Can this be done with Ubuntu desktop version? Would it be recommended due to the small number of users? Or should I use a server platform?I have never used Linux before but have used command line interfaces and am looking forward to it. I installed Ubuntu Server 9.10 32 bit and have even gone as far as logging in. Amazing I know. I installed it on a separate disk so I can switch between Windows and Linux startup disks at boot via cmos.as a first step into linux would like to be able to browse the web from Ubuntu Server 9.10 if the Server edition is in fact the route I should be taking.I would also like a good source to learn not only command line commands but also all the stuff that I see after the commands, you know, all the stuff with - signs all over the place.

Ubuntu Servers :: Samba BDC Not Authenticating Users

Jul 18, 2010

I have two ubuntu 10.04 64-bit servers running samba (3.4.7) and openLDAP (2.4.21). The LDAP directory is successfully replicating between the two servers. These servers also serve as LDAP servers for sudo, pam, nss, and other services for a dozen servers without issues. The BDC samba is configured to use itself for LDAP. I connected to the BDC using the samba ldap credentials and verified I could a) see the Computer object b) read NTPassword and LMPassword. The workstations can authenticate to the domain successfully against the PDC. If a workstation boots and connects to the BDC, they login fails with:

Ubuntu Servers :: New Users Don't Have Bash History?

Nov 23, 2010

installed Ubuntu Server Edition and I've found that my first user has a bash history and I can turn on a coloured prompt by editing my .bashrc etc but new users don't have that!I did : useradd -d /home/newb -m newbpasswd newband the correct looking .bashrc file appears to be in /home/newb but it is being ignore by bash when logged in as newb. Instead I am presented with just a dollar prompt instead of "newb@server"how can I sort out my users with proper prompts?
