    Yes, but there are ways to move accounts directly from one domain to another, complete with passwords etc, what are you trying to do?

    That sounds just like what i want. im trying to replicate the useres in both domains.

    currentley we have 2 domains server 2003 + win XP and 2008R2 + win 7

    there running side buy side at the moment while i setup the new domain. i want to get all the new users into the new domain without having to type in all 800 users one buy one

    Thanks.

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en Active Directory Migration Tool version 3.1

    Any reason you're making a completely new domain and not just having 2 servers on 1 domain and moving things over step by step?

  5. Thanks to mavhc from:

    Good point, if you're starting from scratch don't forget to use DFS, makes things much simpler in the long term, although it doesn't like hidden shares really.

    I create 2 root dfs shares, domain.local\domain and domain.local\share$, which helps a bit, and you can apparently set folders in dfs to be ntfs hidden.

    the error was "install on server 2008" that all.

    i used a virtual computer with a 30 day trial of server 2008 and everything worked fine. thanks for you help!
