    Thanks in advance for any and all help...

    We have a Win2k server in an NT4 domain that we wish to
    migrate to a new Win2k3 server in the same NT4 domain (new
    hardware for the Win2k3 server). We wish to move all
    files/folders/shares & permissions ALONG WITH all the
    locally created users & groups on the Win2K server TO THE
    Win2k3 server. I know that the FileServerMigration Tool
    can move the file/folders/shares&permissions....but it
    doesn't move the users & groups to my knowledge. Please
    point me in the right direction for the correct utility to
    transfer the users & groups to the new server. Thanks.

    Hi Jeremy,

    Thank you for posting!

    I would like to know what kind of Users and Group you want to migrate. Do
    you mean the Domain Users and Groups or the Local Users and Groups?

    You can use the ADMT (Active Directory Migration Tool) to migrate users,
    groups, and computers from one domain to another, and to analyze the
    migration impact before and after the actual migration process. ADMT can
    install and run from any uplevel member of either the source or target
    domain (Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003, or Microsoft Windows XP).
    However, the simplest configuration is to install and run ADMT on a domain
    controller in the target forest.

    For the detailed information on how to setup up ADMT for the migration from
    Windows Server 2000 to Windows Server 2003, visit the below article in the
    Microsoft Knowledge base:

    326480 How to Use Active Directory Migration Tool Version 2 to Migrate from
    http://support.microsoft.com/?id=326480

    Have a nice day!

    No, I was referring to the SYSTEM LOCAL users and groups.
    We wish to migrate all the system local users and groups
    from box A to box B within the same NT4 domain. Is there
    a utility out there that could do this? Thanks.

    Hi Jeremy,

    To migrate local users and groups, we can use AddUsers utility in Windows
    2000 Resource Kit. This utility can export Users and Groups to a file and
    then you can copy the file the target computer and import it.

    The syntax would be:

    AddUsers /D c:\output.txt

    To dump the user accounts and:

    AddUsers /C c:\output.txt

    To import the accounts into the Windows 2003 member server.

    For the detailed help information on AddUsers utility, you can type
    AddUsers /?.

    I hope that it is helpful. Have a nice day!

    Thanks & Regards,
