    I am trying to export users from a box running windows 2000 and import to a windows 2003 box. Is there a way to do this? i have been looking around online and its just sending me to a lot or junk websites. I was thinking someone here might know the best way. I have password complexity turned off so it should be able to use the old passwords.

    Thanks (in advance :p),

    The answer to this question depends on what you mean by "users." If by users, you mean domain-based users (Active Directory), you can use the guide at http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/techinfo/planning/activedirectory/bulksteps.asp to importing and exporting to active directory.

    If you are talking about standard local users, I'm not too sure if this is possible. You can try finding a program to extract users from SAM files and importing them back, but I'm not too sure about it.
