I guess in the specific edge case that we:
1) Are upgrading
2) Already have an aeolus user, with home directory /var/aeolus
3) Already have a new enough version of aeolus-configure installed so
that the `aeolus-services` script is available to stop/start all
services (as opposed to aeolus-restart-services which is useless in
this situation). Looks like this is only in aeolus-configure >= 2.6.0-1.
In this case, we can stop services, change the home directory with
usermod, and start the services.
Probably worth trying. We seem to have backed ourselves into a bit of
a corner with this one. Oh well, things to remember for next time. :)
Alternatively, we could probably do something nasty like sed
/etc/passwd. I have no idea how badly that may screw things up though.
I'll go look into that a bit right now...
Will this work for environments using network based auth mechanisms?
Suspecting "no" there. :/
