Password Synchronization between NT Domain and 2000 AD Domain

Discussion in 'Server Migration' started by William Tyler, Jul 16, 2004.

  1. Could someone point me in the right direction as to whether there is a
    utility or procedures that I could use to synchronize my NT Domain (approx.
    100 user accounts) with my Windows 2000 AD Domain. All users log into the
    NT Domain, (Windows 2000 AD Domain has just been installed on the network).
    My intent is to migrate all users from the NT Domain over to the 2000 AD
    Domain (using ADMT - Microsoft Active Directory Migration Tool), but both
    Domains will be in existing for sometimes so users will be actively
    accessing both.

    What I need is a procedure or utility that will allow me to have a user's
    password synchronized on the Windows 2000 AD Domain each time he changes his
    password on the NT Domain (which will occur every 45 days).

    Any help you can give me with this will be greatly appreciated.

  2. Hi William,

    Thanks for your posting here.

    As I know, Microsoft does not have such tool to synchronize accounts in two
    different domains. You may need to try some third party software.

    It is a one-way action to use AMDT to perform migration. You can try to
    perform user migration again after you change user's password to keep the
    latest modification.
