How to migrate Windows 2000 NTFS permissions to new Windows 2003 server
Posted on 2006-05-25
I have a Windows 2000 member server with about 50 users with literally thousands of diretories (90+ GB) with various user & group permissions. Ideally I would like to setup this new Windows 2003 server as a domain controller, setup users and groups with the exact same names as my 2000 server, then copy the files from my 2000 server over the network and retain the exact NTFS permissions. Even better we be an option to pull over the user names and groups so I don't have to re-enter them. My concern is about the SID's and that even if I name the users the same and groups the same that the permissions will somehow get lost.
Thanks in advance.
