JSI Tip 3344. How can I incrementally migrate users and resources to a new Windows 2000 environment?

"Customers deploying Microsoft® Windows® 2000 might want to migrate users and resources incrementally to a new Windows 2000 environment in order to minimize disruption to their existing Windows NT® version 4.0 production environment.

ClonePrincipal supports migrating users and resources from Windows NT to Windows 2000 by creating clones of Windows NT 4.0 users and groups in the new Windows 2000 environment. Once the users and resources have been migrated successfully to the new environment, the original source accounts are no longer needed and should be deleted."

"More information about the ClonePrincipal utility can be found in the Clonepr.doc file, that is included in the Windows 2000 Support Tools package. You can install the ClonePrincipal utility from the Windows 2000 Support Tools package."

NOTE: Install the Windows 2000 Support Tools from the Support\Tools folder on the Windows 2000 Professional or Windows 2000 Server CD-ROM.>
