Hello.

I'm getting ready to migrate from a Windows 2000 Server to a Windows 2003 Small Business Server.  I have 5 remote users.  Is is possible to use ADMT to migrate users, computer acocunts, and file/folders and then configure the remote users' laptops without having physical access to them?  Microsoft's documentation says that the computers need to be turned on and connected to the network and that all users of each client computer are logged off during the migration.

Any advice would be appreciated.

There's actually no need to migrate your domain into a new one; you can keep your domain and move it to an SBS domain:

Thanks for the link.  I always thought that a Windows SBS could not have any other domain controllers on the network.  This makes my migration to a new server a lot easier.

You can have additional DCs (standard server) in an SBS domain; they just can't have own any FSMO roles.
