    Dear all,

    I need to migrate users from NT4 Server to 2003 AD.
    ADMT said it cannot run on mixed mode.
    How can i solve it?

    Thanks

    It means that the target domain must be in native mode.

    You can't, at least not with the ADMT.

    Best way would be to introduce a Windows 2003 DC to the NT 4 domain (to
    replace the PDC) IMHO.
    Otherwise, you have to go to native mode to use the migration tools.

    Hang on here....

    The ADMT works just fine in Mixed mode.... you just can't do SIDHistory or
    password migration. Granted these operations are the major benefits of the
    ADMT path, but if you are just looking for object copy and are willing to
    deal with the password issue and re-assign access permissions to resources
    (shares, applications, profiles, etc) then this is an option.

    Do consider Native Mode and ADMT though. Migrate your users to a new domain
    and leave the NT4 boxes as a resource domain. With he SIDHistory intact,
    you'll be able to access the resources as you build and test a migration
    plan to 2000/2003 for those servers.
