Using ADMT to Migrate User Accounts from Windows 2000 AD Domain to a Windows 2008 Domain
Posted on 2008-10-28
I created a lab environment to start working on a server migration project. My goal is to move the user accounts from a Windows 2000 AD Server to a Windows 2008 AD Server. I have information overload from Google, but I did not find any web page that has steps 1 through 100 that show you exactly how to do this.
I believe that what I need to do is run MS's ADMT and then figure out the rest of the process.
What I've done so far is:
Convert our existing AD server to a VM
Created a new VM with Windows 2008 - I also installed AD services and ran DC Promo. This also confgured DNS
On each server, I then created Secondary zones on each server
So far I think I'm on the right track...
Now when I run MS ADMT, it states that my Admin account on 2008 does not have access to the 2000 Admin account (not using the verbatim error message).
Can anyone explain to me verbatim what to do to enable trusts between both servers? Or am I going about this totally wrong?
