After much tinkering recently, I thought I'd try using a NW6.5 server
(suggested by a post from a NW5 forum) as a Hub server to migrate data and
trustees from NW5.0 sp5a (DS 7.51) to OES Linux.

Data and Trustee rights are carried over from NW5.0 to NW6.5, but the
passwords are not. Are these encrypted so that the Server Consolidation
tool is unable to read them? Is there a way round this using a third party
tool or anything else which would carry users passwords over?

Thank you.
