I have a single domain network that I run with only one computer running AD on Windows 2000 server sp4. Unfortunately the hard drive is dying and I am setting up our new PDC on a Windows 2003 server in a new forest and was hoping to use admt to migrate the user accounts with SID's over to the new server to make the move a little easier. I have never used admt before so I have been following documentation on Microsofts website and heres the trouble I ran into over the weekend. First does it matter whether you run admt on the source or target PDC? Everything I tried so far has been done from the target PDC b/c I'm trying not to use the source PDC too much b/c of the hard drive. Second I've tried to migrate the passwords but it keeps saying that it can't find the password export service on the source PDC (but I can do w/o the passwords if I have too it's the SID's that I really need). So I continued on and it said that it couldn't verify whether auditing and tcpipclientsupport was turned on. Access denied. I have the trust setup and validated, I have auditing turned on like the doc. said, I am running admt as administrator, but when I go to the HKLMSystemCurrentControlSetControlLSA field on the source PDC there is no tcpipclientsupport key. I hope I've given you all the information you need and any help would be greatly appreciated as I have no idea how much longer this hard drive will last. Thank you!
