    I changed the user home directory by usermod but bash_profile is not get there in the new home. Since I tried to create it manually and did the changes in the file but the changes that I needed for is not working. the bash profile worked fine in default home.

    What is the difference between passwd and usermod command, even passwd command can do the same things that usermod does. for example if we want to lock the user account we can use either “#passwd -l username” or “#usermod -L username“.
