These are both Domain controller, and they are on separate domains.
Setup a two-way trust and u are done with this.

To Migrate users

To migrate users from one domain to another (NT to 2K or 2K to 2K)

This is a user manager for NT and Windows 2000 domains. Will download the users and groups from on domain, and then export them onto another domain. Editing features extra.

You can't replicate users between 2 domains. (if you could. it would be just one big domain instead of two). if you want to view users from both domains in the same time, just add another component in MMC.

You add the mmc snap-inn. It shows you your current domain. Right click on the tree root of the new snap-in and choose "connect to a different domain". that's all.
