Moving master.passwd file between servers... is this correct?

I need to migrate a passwd file from an old 6.2 server to a newer 8.0
server (different box). This is what I did:

copied the  '/etc/master.passwd' from old server to
'/etc/master.passwd' on new server
then ran:

pwd_mkdb /etc/master.passwd && pwd_mkdb -p /etc/master.passwd

It seems to work, but is this correct? I'd hate to miss somethign
before it goes online.

Thanks guys!
