How do i migrate users from windows NT 4.0 to windows 2003 server. I have over one hundred users and migrating them manual is sort of difficult. I need to do it all at once.

Is there a reason you're not upgrading the domain?  This is arguably the safest, fastest, least down-time method of migration to 2003.

I've done mutliple migrations to Windows 2000 and 2003. Every time, I have used admt and every time it has worked just fine. The migration process it straight forward and well documented.

1. Start with a cleanup. Remove all user/PC  accounts that are not needed anymore;
2. Move your user accounts to the new domain;
3. Move the workstations;

Let me know if you need a in-detail procedure. And don't forget to back up!
