AIX user ID and group ID change

Hello AIX gurus,

I have a requirement where I have to change user ID of user "myuser" from 100 to 200 and also the group ID of "mygroup" from 2 to 3. Please note that "myuser" has "mygroup" as it's primary group.

What steps do I need to follow for this and in what order? Also can you please tell me what things I need to take care of?

Thank you very much for your time

Thanks for your reply.

What would happen to all files having "myuser" as owner?
