    hi all,

    My company have a windows NT 4.0 PDC and one BDC.
    Now, I install windows 2000 server AD and it work normally.
    I use a admt for user migration. But it need a windows 2000 AD change from
    mixed mode to native mode.
    Would you tell me if i change AD from mixed mode to native mode, the windows
    NT 4.0 PDC can function normally ??( Because I cannot migrate all user at
    the same time)

    thanks

  2. Your NT40 PDC will function normally if you switch to native mode. This is
    necessary to runt he ADMT.

  4. Thanks for your posting here.

    Since they are two different domains, so when you change the Windows 2000
    domain to native mode, it only affect the DCs in the Windows 2000 domain
    and it will not affect another WinNT domain.

    Have a nice day!

  6. Yes. If you have BDCs and move to Native mode, the BDCs must be removed from
    the domain as they will no longer be able to replicate.

  7. Brian is right.

    Native mode does not support SAM replication to Windows NT-based down level
    domain controllers. It is recommended to upgrade NT BDC to Windows 2000 DC.

    You can also refer to the following document for more information.
