Server Installation

Hi Guys,

I got my new server up an running with 2012 Server OS,
need some help with active directory.

I have about 100+ Users on my old server which is Server 2003, is there a tool or some steps i can follow to export the 100 users and import to sever 2012 active directory ?


any help with this would be great,
Thanks

The EASIEST thing to do would be to make your 2012 server a replica DC in the existing 2003 domain. Then you don't have to export or import. It all must replicates.

If that is not an option for some reason, Microsoft's ADMT tool do what you need. But because of 2012, you'll need to set up an intermediary 2008 R2 server as well.

Depends on how you are going to go about it.  If it is just a simple import/export you can use ADMT.  Otherwise if it is the same domain and you are adding 2012 to the 2003 you can transfer the roles over to the 2012 which would sync the accounts across.

Some more information can be found here along with a guide in the answered solution on how to use ADMT.

Are you planning to add this is a DC in your current domain?  If yes then once you do that the objects will replicate to the new DC as part of normal replication.

Thanks
