    Default zmztozmig - Passwords?

    Hello All...
    I have read all the posts on zmztozmig but I can not find the answer the following. We are planning for a migration from NE 6.08 to 7.2 sometime at the end of the month. We will have a nice new Dell server with RH 6.3 64-bit installed...We have about 200 users and we would like to use zmztozmig to migrate to the new server. However, does the migration tool pull over user passwords? I did notice that it says we need to "provision" the users on the destination server...Do these users have blank passwords and then the migration tool will pull over their existing passwords from the old server?

    Based on what I read we need to re-create aliases and distribution lists...Anythings else that will need to be recreated?

    Thanks much...I read through the Wiki and I could not find an answer to the password question.

    Thanks

    Dave

    Also, considering the ZeXtras Migration Tool. Looks pretty slick... Any thoughts on using that instead of zmztozmig?

    Thanks

    Why don't you follow the 32bit to 64bit wiki article?

    Thanks Bill...I did read that article and it would work fine...I am going from RH 5 ES 64-Bit to RH 6.3 ES 64-bit. I know it would work but the old server is running 6.08 and the new one would be running 7.2...How would the article you mention handle the version differences? I believe the article assumes the same version level. This is not a problem since I can download 6.08 and install on the new box and then upgrade. However, I do not see support for 6.08 running on RH 6.3...

    My original plan was to install RH 6.3 on the new box and then install 6.08 on the new box...Then migrate the data from the old server to the new server...Then upgrade to 7.2 on the new box. But my main concern was running 6.08 (even for a short time) on the new RH 6.3 box.

    I am overthinking it?

    Thanks
    Dave
