Yes, he should be able to check bags through on separate tickets with an all UA (or Star Alliance even) itinerary.

You might have a look at this page and bring it with you just in case you have any issues:

"Baggage can be checked through to the final destination if the separate ticketed itinerary includes Star Alliance member airline-operated flights."

Lucky the booking involved United. It is increasingly rare to find airlines who are willing to check bags through unless the passengers book through tickets. United is an exception. Even their fellow Star Alliance airlines often won't do it - there are reports that people who were through checked from a United flight to (say) Lufthansa when flying on separate tickets are surprised to find that Lufthansa won't do the same on their return journey.

Thank you all,

One other concern is when we check in online for the 2nd ticket do we relply checking bags or not?
