I have a standalone server that is running Windows 2000 Server with a ton of user accounts that I would like to migrate over to a new server also running Windows 2000 Server.  Is there a tool that I can use that will allow me to copy the accounts & passwords?  I do not want to replicate the entire server - just the user accounts.

    Does ADMT require a domain to work?  These servers (and user accounts) are not part of a domain.
