Hello,
We are planning the migration to Windows 2000. We are going to use ADMT v2 to help us with the process.

Scenario:

-nt 4.0 Domain A (accounts and resources) for a Business unit
-nt 4.0 Domain B (accounts and resources) for a Business unit.
-New Domain w2k3 for consolidating domains.

two-way trust between Domain A and Domain B
two-way trust between Domain A and Domain w2k3
two-way trust between Domain B and Domain w2k3

There are users in Domain A who access to shared folders in Domain B.
There are users in Domain B who access to shared folders in Domain A.


Using Admt v2 we are going to migrate users from Domain A to Domain W2k3, using Sids history, so the migrated users to the Domain w2k3 will be able to access to the resources in Domain A and Domain B (through Sid-History).

Ok, at the end of the migration process in Domain A,  we would like  to run the Security translation wizard to replace the Old SID in the migrated objects for the New SiDs. Ok ADMT V2 will work well for the migrated objects (from the Domain A) and will replace the SIDs. After this, theorically, if all is ok, we could remove pdc and bdc. However, the question is for the ACLs which exist in Domain B  (referencing users of Domain A who have been migrated to the new domain), What will happen ?. Once We remove the Domain A, this ACEs will appear as "Unkown account",
Are there any tools to scan and  replace ACEs in other domains resources where appears ACEs refering to users and groups in Domain A?

thanks in advance

Yes; subinacl.exe from the W2k3 Resource Kit Tools is able to replace ACEs.

====8<----[subinacl.exe]----
SubInAcl enables administrators to:
[...]
* Replace the security information for one identifier (account, group, well-known security identifier (SID)) with that of another identifier.
The /replace and /changedomain options change security information in the Owner, System ACL, and Discretionary ACL fields, but the Primary Group information is never replaced. For example, /replace=DOM_MARKETING\ChairMan=NEWDOM\NewChairMan replaces all access control entries (ACEs) and owners containing DOM_MARKETING\ChairMan with the NewChairMan SID retrieved from NEWDOM domain.
* Migrate security information on objects.
This is useful if you have reorganized a network's domains and need to migrate the security information on files from one domain to another.
For example, /changedomain=OldDomainName=NewDomainName replaces all ACEs with a SID from OldDomainName with the equivalent SID found in NewDomainName

Ok, thanks very much for the answer,

Anyway, do you Know any General script which include this SUBINACL tool in order to replcace rhe rights.
For example a script with input parameters such as files with the servers to be scanned,
Sid mappings files indicating the correspondence between the existing SID to be replaced and the new SID we want to include (we would prepare this files). ???

Thanks again
