I have a Win2000 Server (stand-a-lone server, workgroup) with about (50) users. How do I copy these users with their security settings to a new Windows Server 2003 (stand-a-lone server, workgroup). I am installing some specialized software that cannot be installed on a server with Active Directory.

I am not sure that you can easily, although maybe via
Import users into AD

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/327620/en-us

How to use Csvde to import contacts and user objects into Active Directory

or alternatively the adduser command line util, to get the users into the system.

I am not sure that you can get the security settings over.

I would also look into using  the Win2k Server resource kit, since it also has more tools.

I hope this helps !
