MS SBS 2003 Premium upgrade from SBS 2000 left duplicate USERS folders in AD

I recently upgrade a customer from Win2000 SBS premium to SBS 2003 Premium.  I felt the upgrade went well although I lost my active directory objects from administration tools.  In addition I seem to have duplicate areas in AD for users accounts.

Active Directory Users and Computers(clemcmain.clemc.local)
clemc.local
     MyBusiness
        Users
           SBS Users

Old accounts are under above and new account are created in area list below.  I assume a migration step is needed or something to merge old and new accounts moving forward.   We also were unable to connect using default weblink http:\\mycompany after upgrading the server.

Active Directory Users and Computers(clemcmain.clemc.local)
clemc.local
Users

I have noticed different versions of SBS2000 created different OU structures for various things, some used the users container, others used the mybusiness users OU's, some mixed both. SBS2K3 probably just couldn't see them as builtin.

I would run with whatever OU you feel more comfortable with, and leave it at that. So long as you keep them all together in the tree (at least in a common branch, if not all the same OU) then you'll be right.

Not sure about the mycompany one - I'll look at a live server before thinking about that.
