Error migrating unix mp-ras 32 bit to linux suse 64 bit

Hi.

I need to migrate the whole unix environment from a Unix mp-ras 32 bit to a Linux Suse 64 bit.

1) can i use cpio to copy the data?
2) can i just copy the users from unix to linux or do i have to create them by hand
3) are there any other concerns i should worry about?

thanx

if there are only a small number of users you should probably just recreate them by hand. For a large number of users I would write a shell script to do the user account creation.

You certainly can use cpio to copy over the data but don't expect any executables or libraries to work.
