How to move several servers from one domain to another?

how can I move several servers (development and production) running Windows 2000 and 2003 from our old domain to a new one and making sure to update all permissions so users can still access them? How do I make sure that the applications running on these servers (some are web servers) also update permission levels?

Well permissions are domain based so as long as you have the permissions (groups) set up on the new domain then you should be OK.
You will need to use ADMT to migrate users from the old domain to the new domain.
To migrate servers - you will need to do a dc promo (if they are domain controllers) then add them to the new domain.
Member servers will need to be joined to the domain like normal.
Whoa whoa whoa there ryansoto..   Unless I missed something (and I read it three times), I don't see anything about moving domain controllers, or creating a new domain controller..

OP - if these are MEMBER servers (as in not domain controllers), all you have to do is change the domain the servers are a member of.

If they are domain controllers, then you need to worry about ADMT and all that other stuff.

But, all things being equal, the accounts that access the server are all domain accounts (not local accounts), and these are only member servers, then it's a menial task to move them from one domain to another.
