    Re: Moving Home Dirs?

    I have done it with the old NT usermanager on Windows 2000. You have to find the real NT one, not the disabled one on 2000. I've no idea if it will break anything though, but I was able to modify the home dir attribute for multiple users. Win 2000 ADUC doesn't support editing multiple user properties.

    I suggest you use AD modify linked above with the %username% it can edit a single property or lots, just edit the home folder one. You also have to run it on a local drive, not on a share due to .net permissions.

    Yes, it works on W2000. It even worked in a similar way on NT4. The command was slightly different and you had to create the empty folder structure first, but it could still be done.

    Robocopy will certainly copy files with all the permissions. Just specify the /COPYATSOU parameter, which will copy (D)ata, (A)ttributes, (T)imestamps, (S)ecurity, (O)wner and a(U)dit settings.

    The other nice thing about robocopy is that you can re-run the same command to either recover from a failed copy or two keep the two servers in sync during a migration.

    Robocopy GUI is useful to help configure all those parameters.

    Doesn't it cost? Xcopy is free!
