    Re: export users with password from domain

    Can't be done!
    The password is not stored in AD, just the password hash
    There are tools to break this, some of which work
    If you want the same domain (which would save you a lot of hassle if everything works already) why not add a new server as an additional DC, transfer FSMOs and demote the old one. Once you have blasted it away you can reverse the process
