copy users password from shadow file in another server

Hello all,
   After I created users on a new server, I tried to copy their data from
an old server's /etc/shadow
to this new server's /etc/shadow file, so that user can login with the
same password to this new server.
I tried it, but it failed and given me this error message:
Authentication service cannot retrieve authentication info
   I just wonder whether can I do this?
