installation of a new machine.

By jaoff ·
I want to install a new server but I do not want to lose the active directory. How do I migrate the AD on the old directory so that I have all the information in tact.

Also, the users points to a folder \\server/home/username

How do I make sure the new home is reflected in the user's Profile tab on the new machine when you access the property of a user.

If you are keeping your current w2k server then active directory should not come into it unless you want it too keep a part of the dirtectory.

Is it just going to be a member server to store data? what did you have in mind for the new server?
