I am setting up a new server (2003) to take the place of my old DHCP/DNS Logon server (2000). Is there an easy way to migrate the information from the old to the new, like copying a file or something? I am setting up the new 2003 server with a new forest/domain different from the old one but all the users and computers are still the same.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I did a google search and most hits were on migrating from NT but you may want to check out this package:

    Almost a 'gotcha' question. New server in a new domain, BUT import old users. Start with the Microsoft tool "ADMT". Active Directory Migration Tool is designed specifically for your scenario. Good Luck.

    As Howard2nd mentions, use AMDT. It is not perfect, but it will get the job done, though you will probably need to tidy things up a bit after the import to the new domain. One of the problems seems to be passwords. We have one guy that does this work, and I'm not sure the resolution he has come up with, or if it is a consistent problem. Read up on it, then take the plunge. Steve
