I am about to move users from one domain in Windows 2003 server to another. What do I need to do to ensure that when they log on to the new DC, their profiles will move with them in terms of desktop items and such?

    And how about ones moving from NT4 to 2000, would there be any difference? All client PCs in both situations are either W2K or WinXP. Thanks!

    Question 1: You have to migrate the users the users with admt = Active Directory Migration Toolkit, so they keep their SID.

    Question 2: No, it´s nearly the same it depends all on the sid.
