Importing W2K SBS domain info into W2K3 Standard domain via CSVDE and LDIFDE

edentone asked
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
I have a Win 2K Small business server and the users contained inside must be imported into a new Win2K3 Standard Server.

According to my previous post: https://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Q_21422257.html I cannot run ADMTv2 and instead must run CSVDE and LDIFDE.

I have exported all user data it seems via CSVDE from the old domain and plan on importing it to the new domain. Now I want to import the user data, group data, SID info, etc. Do I do that via CSVDE or via LDIFDE?

What do I have to do with the output.csv that I have created with CSVDE and should I export via LDIFDE as well?

Please clarify what would be the best way to handle the export and import. Thank you in advance...
