File Server Domain Migration

Post by TWFudWV » Sat, 26 Jan 2008 01:22:04


Hi,

We are in a migration process from AD2000 domain to a new AD2003 domain, so
we are going to migrate some File Servers to the new domain.

Is there any tool that I can use to backup and restore the Files and Shares
Folder permissions?

I read about the File Server MIgration Toolkit, but I understand that this
software is useful when the migration is from a source server to a target
server, but in my case is the same server that Im going to migrate from
AD2000 domain to AD2003 domain.

Thanks for advices.

Regards.

Probably ADMT is your best non third party product.

Hello Customer,

Thank you for your post. This is George and I will be assisting you in this
post.

Based on your description, I understand that you want to move these File
Servers to the new domain without files and shared folders' permissions
changed. If anything is misunderstood, please feel free to let me know.

Yes, KevinJ is correct (thanks to KevinJ for the inputting), you can use
the ADMT tool to migrate the file servers to the new domain. During the
migration, you can chose whether or not to translate the security settings
on NTFS folders, shares, registries, and so on. However, to successfully
migrate the security settings on shares and NTFS folders, we must use ADMT
to migrate the user and group accounts first. (Otherwise, ADMT does not
know how to translate the security settings.)

For more information regarding ADMT, please refer to:

If anything is unclear, please feel free to let me know. I look forward to
your reply.

Thank you and have a nice day!
