    If you have the resource kit loaded, ADDUSERS will do
    this for you. It will create a delimited text file of all
    your local accounts on the NT server and they can be
    imported on the Windows 2003 server.

    It's not local user accounts that I want to transfer; it's local groups. We have created local groups on the nt4 server and added our domain global groups to them. So, in effect, the scopy or whatever tool, would have to create the local group on the win2003 server and add the users. I tried creating the group ahead of time using the grpcpy reskit tool but that didn't help. I swore I used scopy in the past to do this put I end up with a sid with a ? by it where the local group should be.

  3. Hi Mary,

    You can use ADDusers.exe to move the domain local group. After you export
    the users and groups of source domain to a file, you can modify it and
    only leave the domain local group part. Then run ADDusers.exe on the new
    domain to import the file.

    Please refer to the following document for more information.
