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

You probably get a cleaner setup with better default permissions if your final server is not an upgraded NT4 PDC.

I believe you mean Stand-alone and not domain, it is just a stand alone computer with no Domain controller. This is one of the reasons you need a domain controller, it is possible using backup and restore to accomplish this (restoring to a computer with different hardware), and then upgrade to windows 2000. However this is a lot of trouble to do. I would reccomend setting up the new Windows 2000 Server, run DCPROMO on the new server, setup Active Directory. Then copy all the files (data, not system) from the old computer.
If however this is a WinNT PDC:
1. Install WinNT on the new machine, as BDC.
2. Promote new machine to PDC.
3. Upgrade new machine to Windows 2000.
4. Run DCPROMO.
