I have a win2k server using two 9gb SCSI drives. I will be replacing both drives with two 36gb drives and doing a clean install of Win2003 server. Is there anyway to transfer the users/groups to the new machine?

My HD died. Can I migrate users from my Tape B/U by restoring selected files?

My bad  HD will run for a short period of time before it stops, would it be possible to hook up this drive in the win2003 server and migrate the info off?

Ouch... what rotten luck.

No you wouldn't be able to migrate directly off the Tape Backup Unit because the migration requires only some of the info (the user information) from your Active Directory Database.

And it wouldn't be possible to hook-up the drive to the Windows 2003 either.  You'd need to restore to another Windows 2000 server (if need be... depending on the type of backup) using Acitive Directory Restore Mode... then you can migrate.

If, however, that wasn't you only domain controller you're in business...  you can still migrate the users using the other DC.

OK, thanks. I only have one server so I guess I am out of luck. No big deal. It will be good to redo everything and make the changes I never got around to.

Thanks again.
