    Dear all

    If I add a new user account on windows 2000 AD , my windows NT4.0 PDC and
    BDC do not see new account. Why?

    I mean that the replication of the (LSA, SAM, Builtin) database between 2000
    and NT4.0

  2. Hi,

    Windows NT 4.0 PDC cannot be in a Windows 2000 AD domain. Could you please
    describe your network environment in more detail?

    The Windows 2000 domain controller must operate in the mixed mode which
    provides compatibility with Windows NT 4.0 backup domain controllers (BDCs).
    Please check if this is the case.

    For additional information, please refer to the following articles:

  3. Basically, something is f??ked.

    Did you setup a new 2000 and just give it the same name as your NT 4.0
    Domain? If so this is the problem, while the domains are named the same, the
    OSes view them totally different. You would have to do an inplace upgrade
    of your NT 4.0 PDC to 2000 or create a new domain in 2000 (as you may have
    already done) and use tools to migrate your users over.
