    I have 2 Win2003SRV AD domain. I want to export all the users and their
    attributes (included the passwords) from one domain and import in the other
    one. I have tried with LDIFDE, but the password are missing.

  5. Hello Marco,

    What do you want to do? Building a test environment, syncing the two
    directories just once, or do you want to keep the two directories in

    If you just want to sync once you can use ADMT - however I would not
    recommend to run it for a long time (but you'd be able to resync) since
    you need to loosen security to be able to access the passwords. If you
    want to keep those two directories in sync you can use Microsoft
    Identity Information Server with Servicepack 1, which provides a
    solution to sync the passwords also. Issue here is that the password is
    not readable and reversable by default (which is good = secure), but
    MIIS with SP1 is able to exchange a DLL on the DCs where the password
    is passing and then it's pushing a password change to the other
    connected directories.

    I hope that helps.

    Gruesse - Sincerely,

    Ulf B. Simon-Weidner
