Migration of NT 4 local accounts to 2003 R2 local accounts

    I am attempting to migrate a VERY OLD FTP server running on NT 4 (IIS4) to
    new hardware running 2003 R2. I am currently using local accounts on both
    servers as these are not connected to our AD environment. I am able to
    migrate the IIS FTP sites but am needing to migrate the corresponding NT
    accounts to 2003 accounts. I am hoping somone has been through this, albeit
    likely a long time ago, and can remember the steps/tools they used to
    successfully migrate.

    Does ADMT work for local accounts?

    Does anyone know of a tool to migrate both FTP sites and NT accounts?
    IISExportUtility only migrates the FTP sites.

    Is there a way to export the NT 4 local accounts to a CSV and import into
    2003? The CSVDE tool speaks only to AD accounts from what I have read.

    Any detailed help is appreciated.

    Thanks Meinholf. I will check out the migration tool. I am more concerned
    with migrating the FTP virtual sites along with the local user accounts. The
    data can be handled with a batch/script.

    I am dealing with 30 - 40 accounts each attached to a virtual site for
    logging on directly to their own FTP site, not navigating from the root
    folder. So the problem is migrating the accounts and virtual sites and having
    them remain connected with the correct permissions as server and drive name
    will be changing as well.

    I am considering multiple free tools to do this and also the ServerMigrator
    from WinZero. Any input / suggestions on this tool and any others with a
    proven record are appreciated/

    Does anyone know if the Microsoft IIS 6.0 Migrator works with FTP and if any
    of the above are addressed by this tool? I have not used/tested this.

    Any detailed solutions are greatly appreciated.

  6. Hello JMic,

    As you already stated better use the IIS newsgroup for that questions.
