[LON-CAPA-admin] Server migration

We still have issues with the LON-CAPA migration from our old SLES9
machine to the new FC5 machine.

We successfully managed these things:
- Install LON-CAPA 2.3.0
- Configure https and LDAP
- Transfer data with rysnc as suggested before
- Transfer account files (/etc/passwd, /etc/shadow, /etc/group,
- Adjust account files (*1)
- Again execute .../loncapa-2.3.0/UPDATE
(standalone, different IP address, different hostname, but same domain
name and same server name: fhwf, fhwfl1)

I was told that FC5 has different internal Linux users and that we could
not just copy all account files from the old SLES9 machine to the new
FC5 machine. The helping hand from our network team changed the files as
they seemed to be changed for him. Not sure about this.

Do you have a hint how we could handle this?

(Maybe another) problem with the login / roles:
Authentication with different users via https and LDAP is possible
without any problems, but after the login each user we checked had no
roles assigned at all.
Wrong file permissions? Something missing?

Any idea?
