Transfer NT of users

by ComputerDude In reply to Transfer NT of users

There is a command line utility in the NT resource kit called addusers.exe, It has an export feature and an import feature. It exports the users to a .csv file and then you use this file to import into the new system. I just used this recently to transfer about 100 users. The only problem is that it does not transfer the password. It sets the password to be changed at logon.

Hope this helps,
Dave

Here's another idea, maybe a little less cumbersome...as long as you are talking about domain users, and not local users.

Make the new server a BDC in the domain, wait a day for the SAM database to fully replicate. Promote the new server (BDC) to PDC. Then retire the old server.
