Moving users from one box to another

I have a server running windows 2000 advanced server. I bought a faster machine and have it pretty well configured. I need to move all the users to the new machine. Is there a way to do this without re-entering all them? Thanks in advance for any help.

Standalone or creating a new domain?

Assuming a standalone server I would use AddUsers.exe to migrate the userbase.

Hi, troyd1,

Have you try using either ldifde or csvde program in your server's system32 folder?  Both tools, not GUI, can easy export all of your users to a file.  And take this file to your new server and rerun the program to import your users.

To find out how to use the program, type: LDIFDE /?   or   CSVDE /?
for further instruction.

Hope this help!

I could not get either of these options to work and needed them moved so I did them manually. Any advice on how to award/not award points would be appreciated.

If you didn't use either of our answers put a request in the CleanUp Topic Area for Delete/Points refunded

Sorry you had to do it the long way.  I've used add users before, and would have posted my scripts had you responded.

I split the point as I did not know if either if these would have worked. I awarded the points because oof the quick response.

Thanks, Troy
