I currently have two NT4.0 servers (PDC/BDC) in a Domain setting. We have
ordered new hardware and would like to upgrade the user accounts (SAM
database) and some data across to the new hardware. When all is said and
done, we would like to the new hardware to be a mirror of the old hardware
(i.e.: I.P. addresses, computer names, data -- less some of the current
applications. Upgraded versions to existing applications will be installed
separately). A few questions come to mind that you may be able to assist me
with answering/resolving:
1. What is the most efficient way to accomplish this?
2. Would this have to be performed in an offline setting and would the
ADMT2.0 work although I do not want to configure AD.
3. In order to to configure the new hardware in a Domain environment, would
I have to run AD?
Thanks very much for your response.

A domain on Windows 2000 and above is an Active Directory domain. ADMT
would have nothing to migrate the accounts to.

What's your fear of Active Directory?
