Copying User Names, Passwords, Group Policies, Folders and Data Files w\Permissions from Windows 2000 Server to Windows 2003 Server
Posted on 2004-10-22
I have a Windows 2000 Sever (the only server currently on the network) and I want to copy the User and Group Policy Information and data files to a new Windows 2003 Server running RAID 1. The data folders and files have numerous permission settings, i.e, some users have no access to some folders, some have read only and others have full access, etc. The old Windows 2000 Server will remain on the network as a backup This network is a workgroup and not a domain. Active Directory is not used. I have read that software packages don't always work. What is the easiest way to accomplish this?
