Win 2000 Server & NT server coexist

By rmckelvey ·
We have an NT 4.0 Server. we are replacing it with a Win 2000 server which is already configured and set as an active directory server. Can the two see each other without conflict for the purposes of transfering data and then shutting down the NT server ?

Just bring the Windows 2000 server up as a stand alone server (as opposed to a domain controller). Map a drive to the NT Server, transfer the files. Then shut down the NT Server, and promote (using dcpromo.exe) the Win 2k Server to a domain controller.

The previous answer is fine if you have not configured anything for Active Directory. If you have, then AD is lost when you demote the server as it is the only one left in the domain.
If you have set up AD then hopefully the domain names are different. You can then set up an explicit trust on the 2000 server and the NT machine.

The 2000 server is already active directory and the same domain, is there anyway to connect temporarily to transfer data ?
