Have an existing Win2000 domain that has tons of problems.  Spent some time trying to clean-up but think I would be better off starting pristine.  I can consolidate and free up 1 of 7 servers to start for a DC.  Looking for best way to create/migrate new pristine domain with users, shares and such from old domain.  

Also, any one with experience using DFS on Win2000.  2003 is outside our budget for a while.

Thanks.

What we normally do with migrations are the following steps:

- Create a new domain/DC
- Establish trust with old domain
- Use ADMT v2.0 (www.microsoft.com) to migrate users and groups
- Copy data with robocopy (includes NTFS permissions)
- Use subinacl to edit ACL on copied data to reflect new domain
- Re-create shares on new domain
- Move workstations to new domain

If you need anymore detail, please let me know. We do this kind of migrations all the time.....

And then at that point you can create your Distributed File system based off your domain name and set up your root target and linked servers.  Piece o cake.
