We are still running a Novell 3.12 server (with plans to upgrade).  Does anybody know of a way to pull down username and passwords into Windows 2000 Pro so I don't have to recreate all of them.

-If you really mean novell to win2000 pro...it can be done & doesnt make much sence either. If it was a mistake & you meant novell to 2000 server... check this article out.

For Windows 2000 Pro Workstations:

You can do this with Zenworks starter pack - create a group and add users to it:
1) This will allow you to create "user policies"
2) Create a user policy that enables "Dynamic Local Users".

(So you would set up a policy for winNT/2000 which will allow for the automatic creation/management of local NT users based upon the Novell Login ID.)
