NT4 Member Server to Win2K3 Member Server

    NT4 SP6a Server
    IIS4 FTP server
    Several hundred local user accounts

    Need to get to:

    Win2K3 Server
    IIS6 FTP Server
    Several hundred local user accounts

    Upgrading the current machine is not an option. Machines are in an NT4 domain

    How do I:

    1. Transfer the user accounts and groups, complete with passwords, from the
    NT4 machine to the Win2K3 machine?
    2. Transfer the IIS schema from the NT4 machine to the Win2K3 machine?

  2. Hello Bill,

    Good to hear from you.

    According to the message, I understand that you want to migrate from a NT
    server to a win2k3 server in the same NT4 domain. Your concern is to
    transfer the user accounts and the IIS schema. Is this correct?

    As for the transfer of local users between two member servers, I would like
    to suggest that we use a 3rd party tool named MSVR-Migrator. The tool makes
    it simple to seamlessly migrate local users, passwords, local groups,
    folders and shares from Windows member server to member server while
    keeping security and rights intact.

    Please refer to the following link for more information.
