Moving from an old NT 4 system to Win2k

By nothingboy ·
Please Help!

Here in my office we have an old NT 4 system. We just recently purchased a new Win2k Server system and I need help getting it to be the only server on the network with all of the same user accounts as the old one. Please provide as much detail as possible.

The details are on the site of MS.
Here's the general link.

You have to go to the step by step guide, but I provided the link so you have a overview on all aspects (planning, deployment,etc)

Is your NT server a PDC or are you running in a workgroup model. If you're running a domain, install NT 4 on your new hardware, set it up as a BDC. Once you've done that, a copy of the SAM database is automatically transferred to the BDC (your new server). Once you've done that, you can promote the new server to its primary domain controller role, then phase out the old server. After that upgrade the new server to Win2k per Microsoft's instructions.

The above is all dependent on you running a domain. If you are in a workgroup, there isn't an easy way to move those user accounts to the new server, unless you want to do an export then import the user information to the new server.

Good luck.
