NT Server 4.0 and NT 5.0 or 2K

By mmbc_voltron ·
I have an existing PDC and a BDC in NT 4.0
I just purchased a 2K server. I brought it online taking in consideration that I will be later upgrading the PDC as the root ADS.
So this 2k sever is a member server, which is the DHCP server. It did not move over the user accounts from the PDC. Is it true that I have to create a new set of accounts for people that are going to access it? And what happens when I upgrade the PDC to ADS? Will the existing 2k server's accounts show up in ADS? I will want one set of accounts that I can mange on one server.

As far as I know, the only way to maintain your user accounts and SAM database is to first upgrade the PDC. I'm afraid what you need to do is to take your 2K server off the network, upgrade your PDC, and the reinstall your existing W2K server and have it join the AD. Here's what MS has to say about migrating NT 4 to W2K...
