Windows NT4 to 2000 migration
Posted on 2005-05-02
We are moving an NT4 domain to a new 2000 domain.
The old NT4 domain is called nt_domain, the new domain on a W2K Server is called Company.local.
I began by installing ADMTv2 and following the directions. I got Company.local to trust nt_domain but nt_domain does not find company (or company.local for that matter) when I try to reciprocate the trust. So basically old domain trusts new domain but not vice-versa as per instructions of the ADMT KB article # 260871.
On the event viewer in company.local, I get:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: NETLOGON
Event Category: None
Event ID: 5721
Time: 3:43:40 PM
The session setup to the Windows NT or Windows 2000 Domain Controller <Unknown> for the domain NT_DOMAIN failed because the Domain Controller does not have an account for the computer TXLDC1.
0000: 8b 01 00 c0 ‹..À
I created the account for the company.local DC on the old domain as a server but not a BDC. On the old domain DC, I get the following in the security event log:
Type: Success Audit
Logon Type 3
Logon Process KSecDD
Auth Package: Microsoft_Authentication_Package_V1_0
But when I try to add the new domain, I get the error that the domain controller for the new domain could not be found.
I believe that when I get this resolved, I would be able to set up the ADMT software properly to pull everything over.
