Windows NT to Windows 2000 migration

By Lazar01 ·
I'm looking for some procedures to migrate users from a stand-alone Windows NT 4 server to a stand-alone Windows 2000 Server.

Any insight or solutions would be appreciated

Thanks

if it is truely a stand alone. preform a complete backup and run the upgrade. There really isn't anything special . just remember to stop all the sevices like wins and Spoller...
that is the only catch.

Thanks, but I'm trying to get the SAM database and user accounts from this machine to a tottally new, Win2K server, on which the method of a backup-restore-upgrade solution will not work

you can use a third party migration software after you set the win2k server, and also you can use the ADMIT it can backup your users accounts the thing it will have an old SID as history and create a new one, and you have to tell your users to create a new password

ADMT works.

Safest proceedue is usually to add an NT BDC to your domain, promote it to a PDC. Then upgrade this new machine to W2K.

You can now build your new server, join it to the W2K domain you just made. Finally, transfer all operations roles to the new server and demote the the temporary one.

If anything goes wrong, you still have the old server intact.
