Q

Transfer user accounts from Windows 2000 to Windows 2003

An administrator planning on moving from Windows 2000 Server to Windows Server 2003 wants to know if there's a way to transfer all the user accounts from Windows 2000 to Windows 2003, including the SIDs.

I have a Windows 2000 server and I'm planning to migrate it to Windows 2003. However, this is not working due to schema corruption. I'm planning to set up a new domain controller on Windows 2003. Is there any way that I can transfer all the user accounts from 2000 to 2003 including the SIDs?
For an inter-forest migration, check out the Active Directory Migration Tool v3.0, a free download the Microsoft website that includes an option to maintain SID History.
