What is the procedure to backup/restore the Local User and Group accounts for Windows 2000 server. This server is part of a workgroup, not a domain controller.

Thank you

 Use native Backup,  pretty sure that the SAM info is included in the system state.   Try it out, backup the system state to a file,  then bring up restore and see if the SAM is a subset of that set you can restore.

Yep, birdski is correct... the "system state" backup contains the registry where the local accounts/groups are held
