Migrating mail settings from RH 7.3 to 8.0

1421 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  gotissues68
For the past 6 months, I have had our mail server running on an old PII233. I finally received a new(er) dual Celeron 400 machine with the mandate to turn it into a mail, web, and file server for our office network.

I've managed to set it up and get Samba and Apache working, but I can't seem to find how to transfer the current mail settings and user accounts to the new machine.

I'd appreciate any help I can get.

What mail server software are you running?

User account names/passwords can be moved over by doing the following.

tar password.tar /etc/passwd
tar shadow.tar /etc/shadow

replace the one's on the new machine with the copies from the old machine.

User accounts.

tar home.tar /home
gzip home.tar

move it over and then gunzip/untar and move accounts over to the new /home partition.
