comment Copying Linux users and passwords to a new server
An important point: this assumes a server with file-based authentication only. To migrate a server that uses e.g. LDAP or NIS these files will not be enough, especially if the authentication server is on the same system. Other subsystems (e.g. Samba, SQL) may also have their own authentication databases.

@DeepoOoOoz: Better keep everything on this site. If you have more questions, either edit your question with what you have tried and where it fails, or post a new question.

@DeepoOoOoz: 1. Read the manual on the -c option to postfix. 2. you would be better off building a proper Postfix RPM for RHEL, rather than installing a tarball.

Agreed. The OP might have a good reason to do something like that, but at this time we have not heard anything compelling...

@DeepoOoOoz: That said, it seems to me that you are somewhat inexperienced in Unix administration in general and setting Postfix up correctly is not a trivial task, even for seasoned administrators (although it comes nowhere near Sendmail in complexity IMHO). I would suggest going through the Postfix documentation - it is very extensive and quite easy to read. Unless you really understand what you are doing you run the risk of making mistakes such as bringing up an open SMTP relay on the Internet.

@DeepoOoOoz: 1. Install Postfix. 2. Put everything in its final location and configure it. 3. Launch Postfix and test your setup.

@DeepoOoOoz: 1 sec. Why would you need postfix reload? Is there already a version of Postfix on this server?

Well I suppose it's really your (or your client's) problem, but standards and conventions exist for a reason. Could you share the reason why you need/want to do something unconventional like this? Without the reason we could not really tell if your approach is valid or not...

comment Reusing slot numbers in Linux software RAID arrays
@KamilŠrot: I think I remember reading that with some enterprise-grade enclosures Linux was able to determine the physical location of the drive in question. Unfortunately, I am dealing with consumer-grade equipment, so I doubt that ability exists here. Anyway, I found a way to do what I wanted to without going to too extreme measures. Thank you for your help!

comment Reusing slot numbers in Linux software RAID arrays
@KamilŠrot: PCI layouts and SATA port arrangements may change dynamically... matching the RAID slot, which describes what the drive contains, rather than where it is to its physical location sort of makes more sense to me.
