Data hard disk broken, relocate user's home dir. All setting missing

Hi, guys

I am a super newbie in solaris admin....
Now I got a problem.
Due to the broken of one of Raid system, some user home directory is missing.
Someone advises me to relocate the home directory on the new drive.

I have googled and have tried " usermode -d " command.
But I found a problem. No config files for these users.

So I want to ask if there is any better methods? Or how can I recover the environment of these users.
I hope the environment of these users as least as good as a new created user.

Thank you.
Ray

sounds like you need to recover from the last backup. also take a look at the raid configuration - assuming its not just stripped then you should not have lost any data. the home directory paths should not change.

Thank you for your reply!

Sadly, there is no backup...
The problem of raid is just found. It seems 1 disk is broken. It's Raid 5, so I think we may have a chance to recover the data. Right?
I am looking at the manual trying to find the answer...Smilie

if the raid5 is properly configured then no data should have been lost from a disk failure. raid5 is designed to be able to lose one disk.
