Hi there!

anyone has any advice on what the best way to mover from an NT to a 2k domain is? I have 2 servers (1 NT that is the domain controler) and one W2k that I could use as a domain controler. Should I just upgrade the NT to 2000 or rather move all the user info from the NT box to W2k.

i would rather mover the user info from the NT box to the W2k box. Anyways, advice from people that did it already would be very helpful.

Always better to be native 2000. Upgrading works technically but you might run into problems down the road. Unless there are any pressing reasons not to, I'd go with your preference.

do you know of any utilities I could use to transfer the users an groups database from the NT box to the 2K box?

I have 50+ users and no real desire to recreate all the usernames and passwords...

Oh and i agree that it is good to start with a fresh install of W2k rather than upgrading, although both will work.  It depends on what you really want to do and how much time and effort you want to put in to it.
