    After migration of users/groups/computers accounts from
    the old NT domain to the new Windows 2003 domain, I need
    to join each client PC into the new domain one by one. Is
    there any better way to do that? Thanks

  2. Hello,

    Thanks for your posting here.

    After you migrated users/groups, you can run Computer Migration Wizard in
    ADMT to migrate workstations to the new domain. All migrated computers will
    be rebooted automatically to complete the migration process. Before
    migration begins, all users of computers to be migrated should save their
    work and log off. After Computer migration, you can logon the clients to
    the new domain using the new domain user account.

    Did you have migrated the computer accounts to the Windows 2003 domain but
    the clients still are in the source domain?
    Did you get any error during Computer Migration?
    Does the problem occur on all the clients or just some certain clients?

    Hi Bob,

    Computer migration is not started yet. Most of
    workstations are still NT 4.0. Is there any problem about
    that? Any tips about the migration of workstations? Any
    detail articles about how to do the migration? Thanks.
