ADMT – NT4 to 2003 native mode?Locked
I am attempting ro migrate NT4 domai to 2003 AD at ther curretn situation is:
I now have 2 domains:
2003 DC with AD & DNS installed
NT4 PDC with DHCP & WINS running.
I have established trusts between the 2 domains (LMHOSTS & REG hacks) & all seems well when communicating between the two. I can even run
programmes from the NT4 domain on the 2003 domain & all required shares (Domain admins etc) are in place.
I then proceeded to run ADMT2 on 2003 DC and as a trial tried to run a “report wizard” but receive the error “the target domain must be in
the native mode”. From my research, if I change the 2003 DC to native mode I will lose the NT4 domain and therefore will not be able to migrate
user/computer/group/password settings to 2003 AD?
Can NT4 member server operate in a 2003 domain in native mode? If possible can I manually migrate the users XP profiles if the above is negative?
Any assistance is really appreciated & thanx again for your time.
