I have a group of users on a Netware domain/system who are moving over to a completely new Windows 2003 domain.

I think I can obtain a list of users form the Netware administrator, I currently do not need to worry about their e-mail accounts.

Apparently there are around 180/200 users

What would be the quickest way of creating all these accounts from scratch?

Also would there be a way of migrating these acccounts from Netware using software?

I need an answer to both questions as I do not know if the Netware admin will give me access....

Thanks,

I'm not familiar with Netware, but here's a White Paper from Microsoft:
NetWare to Windows Server 2003 Migration Planning Guide

If you only want to create the new users, and the Netware admin can give you a text file with the necessary properties (something like user name, first name, last name, description), an import of that list can be scripted easily.

oBda is correct, Im a little rusty on Netware (left it at 5.01) but there are command line utilities to dump this information from NDS.

There is a utility called ldifde.  Look for this utility and you can script the account creation automatically.
