Do you mean on the BSD machine? There should be no problem _if_: The UID & GID do not conflict with another existing user or group. and You get all of the incidences of the use of that user's UID & GID changed on all of that user's files. But, if it conflicts or you miss some files somewhere, it can come back and bite you. Use find(1) with -group and then with -user to look for the files. ////jerry > > thanks, > > petre > > -- > > Petre Bandac > > Network Scientist > > - > [EMAIL PROTECTED] > _______________________________________________ > email@example.com mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
