Q: I am working with Windows 2000 Server. I'm looking for any method to export the settings, especially the users accounts and password to restore them after a fresh Windows 2003 installation. The second would look for the same to change the server itself to another one with the same name and domain settings.

A: You can use free ADMT.exe (AD Migration Tool)  from Microsoft to help. You can also export AD objects using ldifde.exe from the Resource Kit; however, the LDIFDE may not offer you as complete a migration.
