Re: Unable to Access Users After Upgrade
I am happy to report that I accomplished my task exactly as I had outlined and restored all user environments as planned. I do agree that sometimes you are better off starting with a new slate. It is all about minimizing your headaches and balancing the time spent against what you hope to recover. I guess it is a happy outcome for both our cases.
Yes, setting up a separate /home partition can make it easier to maintain multi-user environments during upgrades.
