On a side note, it sounds like a good opportunity to migrate to ssh key authentication instead of using passwords.

Hello Guys,
                   I want to know how do I manage local UNIX users from
IPA server. We have 250 plus Red Hat servers and right now we are managing
all users locally ( manually changing passwords going on each box ). I have
installed a test IPA server and couple of client machines. However, I am
confused on how to I import /etc/passwd from local machines to IPA server.
I would appreciate if anyone can help me understand this.
It is all of a manual work, more or less.
See https://www.freeipa.org/page/NIS_accounts_migration_preserving_Passwords
for details. It talks about NIS or /etc/shadow as NIS dump is
effectively a replacement for /etc/shadow.
