    We have built a new 2003 server, Web Server.
    We have several users on the old server.
    How can we transfer an exact copy of the user names & passwords to the new server.
    Thanks.

    As you don't say which version of Windows server you are moving from then Ill assume 2000:

    http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000...ctory/admt.asp

    And from NT:

    http://www.petri.com/active_director...ation_tool.htm

    Hope these help

    PS - try choosing a better subject line next time (e.g. Migrating Users from NT to 2003?) That way you will get more people who might know the answer to your question looking at your thread.

      Is this a domain controller?

        Charles is using web edition. That cannot be a DC. Looks like this foot is not going to fit the shoe.

        Why do you need users on a Web edition?

            You could restrict access to various areas of the site using user accounts and NTFS permissions.

              ok, my bad. Still, it strikes me as strange to have user accounts (other then service and admin accounts) on a web server. Let's hear from Charles.

                Users file copy from 1 Server 2003 system to another 2003

                Sorry Guy's. Never assume people know what you mean.

                Server 2003 to Server 2003.
                Previous Server was to slow for the for the work it has to do.
                So we have several user logging into an application via the web that accesses an sql data base. Therefore the number of users.
                I have heard that there is an easy way to transfer the user file from one system to another.
                I hope this helps.

                Charles.

                  So neither are domain controllers?

                        Workgroup.

                        All I we want to do is to find an easy way copy the user accounts file from the old slow system to the new System. These are user that have access to the SQL database as they login via a web application interface.
                        Thanks.

                          I don't think that there is an import feature for workgroups. Looks like you'll need to create all the user accounts from scratch.

                          How many users do you have??

                          Would it not be easier creating a small domain, that way user account management is alot easier
