I have been suggested to copy users from 6.0 version to 6.1 version. We had an earlier bad experience when copying one instance of 6.1 to another instance of 6.1 as it caused unexpected errors in user management.

Is there a best practice or recommended way of copying users?

Hi,

Package manager does help when you want to move users & groups privileges from one instance to another which is a different case.
In order to solve the above problem, we are still going to use package manager. Follow the steps below:

Create a package and put all the users & their groups.
    Exclude few users & groups :
        admin & administrative anonymous (not necessary but good to keep it excluded)
        If same user & group are found in both environments;  delete from AEM 6 instance before installing 5.6 user package. You should ignore admin & anonymous here too

Install it

To verify your accounts, login with any of your group. Also you can verify logged-in user’s privileges.

Note :
This solution is tested and proven in one of our applications. However, if you still find any issue, leave a comment, we will try to help you.
