I have to ask again....should changing the uid:gid in the assign file to
reflect the system, work? It seems like that would be the other way around
the mess instead of changing the systema(vopomail:vchkpw ID's)
You say to ensure that the uid:gid be the same, but what besides the assign
file is dependant on the uid:gid? ....in terms of the files that I have
copird over to the new machine.
Sorry to beat a dead horse, but I dont quite understand this and if I have
to deal with this matter unill it is fixed then I may as well try to
understand what is going on.
