What is the best/safest way to migrate the data of a 10.4 OS X user to a 10.6 OS X Server? This user is a local user (no Open Directory, etc.) on both machines. They are connected through a local network.
Ideally, the following would be migrated:
- iCal and AddressBook data (I am afraid that the format of the data for AddressBook has changed between 10.4 and 10.6.),
- Creation and modification dates,
- Unix access rights.
Since one should not use Migration Assistant on Mac OS X Server 10.6, I'm unsure about how the migration should be done. I'll try a
cp -pR, but I would like to avoid discovering later that some details of the migration were actually wrong.
PS: Moving iCal data from 10.4 to 10.6 Server for a local user does not appear to be that simple:
ditto are not sufficient by themselves; more can be found in the Apple forums. No solution for iCal data yet…
