Ok, here is my problem. I have a group of users on an 2003 DC in the "company" domain, I am creating a new domain on a different network called " world" which is all running with 2008 DCs. I can add a server from "world" to the "company" domain if that is needed but I'm worried if I make it a domain controller on "company" that I will be forced to update my AD schema for 2008 which I  don't want to do.

Basically I'm looking for the best way to COPY select user accounts from the "company" domain to the "world" domain, I'd like to keep the passwords in place after the move if possible. I'm not sure if MS has a tool build in that would accomplish this or if I'd need some third party tool. I'm sure I'll think of more details after I finish this but thats the basic idea.

Any help?
