    This is to say that moving the contents of the second home folder won't have ill effects to the installation? Maybe a better question is if something goes horribly wrong how could I just edit the fstab of the bitstream copy to bring me back online? This is OT a bit but would rsyncing to the bitstream copy work to makesure I keep the server's latest data before taking it down?

    So you did a restore from backup operation for home? Then you copied on
    the wrong place.

    Code:
    ├── home
    │   ├── home
    │   │   ├── josh
    │   │   ├── linuxserver
    │   │   ├── lost+found
    │   │   ├── sfxserver
    │   │   ├── shares
    │   │   └── susebackups
    │   ├── iislinuxserver
    │   │   ├── Desktop
    │   │   ├── Documents
    │   │   └── public_html
    │   ├── josh
    
    ....

    Don't you see? You copied a "home" backup into a "home" directory under
    the already existing "home".

    You would have to move "/home/home/josh" to "/home/josh". Then
    "/home/home/linuxserver" to "/home/linuxserver", etc. As the destination
    directories do exist and have contents, you have to decide what to move
    and replace and what not. Maybe you have to decide instead to remove the
    entire "/home/home/" tree.

    You have to decide that. I can't.

    Yes I see. I am going to move the contents from the second home folder which was created when doing a repair installation not a restore. If anything should go wrong, I was wondering if the bitstream copy will work as a backup.

    I can't say. I'm not familiar with that bitstream.
