Move or Transfer Users from Local to Active Directory

I've got a windows 2000 server with quite a few local users on it, and I'd like to move or transfer those users from that server into Active Directory.  Is there any utility that will do that or will I have to recreate those accounts manually in Active Directory?

    Hi Rowdyone52,

    you will need to create them in AD, i have yet to see a tool that will migrate from local to AD,

    If the servere is already an AD server, you will need to re-create the users.
