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

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 !
