Migrate Win2003 WSS server from NT4 Domain to AD2000 Domain

We have a Win2003 server running Windows SharePoint Services (WSS).  It is a single server solution meaning that both WSS and SQL2000 are on the same server.  The SQL services use the local system account.  

The box is a member of an NT4 Domain.  We need to migrate it to an existing Win2000 AD Domain.  We have a trust with the AD domain, so I have been assigning access to sites and subsites (as well as the box itsself) to users from both the NT4 and AD domains.  All users have accounts with the same username in both domains, so I simply add both into a site or group.

Can I simply move the box (using the same server name) into the new domain?

Hi,

For as far as i can read it from your post, yes you can. Sharepoint services isn't a very complicated program. Only thing you should take into account is user access. Normally, a ACL (Acces Control List)  is created for who can or cannot access a fiel or folder. These ACL's work with SID's (Security ID's), not with user names and passwords. So if you are sure that you can access it from both domains, you should be good to go.

Please keep me informed on how things work out..
