    I have a question regarding my NT to Server 2003 in place migration. I would
    have already ugraded my PDC to 2003 server and ran DCPROMO but I would now
    need to rebuild a NT BDC that contains hundreds of shares. In the past
    working only with NT Ive exported the shares key from the registry. Restored
    folders from backup and imported the share key back in to the registry. This
    is neccessary since all shares are lost when the server server is rebuilt.
    The processs is oulined in this article.

    I need to know if I can export this key from my NT server then format and
    rebuild as a 2003 server and import the NT reg key to bring back shares on my
    newly rebuilt 2003 server? Bottom line exporting a NT reg key into a Server
    2003 registry.

    Thanks

  2. Hello,

    If you real concern is to move the file server, I suggest you use FSMT to
    achieve this goal instead of the export/import the share keys. Please take
    a look at:
