copy users to second PC


Hello,

I've installed a second PC with RH9 installed. Now I do not want to make all my users one-by-one again. Is there no replication tool that will do that for me.

Copy these over....
/home/*
/etc/passwd
/etc/shadow
/etc/group


Also any samba stuff which may be important.

Is there a way that I can do this automatic. So if I add a user on a server that I then also change it automatc in the otherone.

Or do I need to make a script for that.

Could you symlink the necessary files to a network resource, so that the two computers use the same stuff. I don't know if this is what you really want to do though, sounds about right.

You could write a script that, on startup, checks if the other computer has a newer version of a file, and if so replaces it's own file with that one.
