Windows 2000 Migration from NT4 Svr

We are Migrating to Win 2000 Server from NT 4 Server.  As we are doing this we are also changing all
naming conventions for usernames and therefore need to re-create all users.  

I am trying to find a way to print all users and shares and their access rights from the NT4 svr to
work off in order to recreate all users and shares with new names on 2000 with identical access rights.

I know all this info is contained in the SAM file but as it is constantly in use I am unable to copy it,
open it etc.  I tried creating a repair disk for a copy but it was, as suspected, encrypted.

Any ideas?  All suggestions welcome!  Thanks

SAM only contains users, groups and passwords.

But you need the the ACLs of the shares and NTFS volumes/dirs?

Do you have the resource kit? there are some simple command line tools that do this job, but it will be very hard to get an overview.

I think some 3rd Party tools like Hyena will do a good job

Go to www.systemtools.com and download the eval of Hyena. Remember, if you like it, but it, it's worth it!

Also, they have other tools there that will assist you in printing out and collecting information free to download.
