problem with username showing up multiple times in system-co

Post by troj78 » 2005/06/21 20:18:43

I have to identical servers in centos 4. I copied from the /etc/ directory shadow, passwd and group from one server to another. This server is a samba server and it seems that everything is working right, but when I open system-config-users in X, I see one of my users 3 times. I have deleted him and added him back in, yet I still see him 3 times. One, should I have copied other files besides the 3 I copied and what can I do to correct this problem.

Have you checked /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow directly (instead of gui utility) to see if there is any craziness with the user?
