Welcome to MCSE Training Kit—Migrating from Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 to Microsoft Windows 2000. This kit introduces you to the concepts and practices involved in migrating from Microsoft Windows NT to Microsoft Windows 2000. You will learn how to plan, manage, and perform the process of migration and design a fallback plan should anything go wrong with the migration process.
You will learn about the different types of migration and use a variety of tools such as MoveTree, ClonePrincipal, Netdom, and ADMT to perform different aspects of a migration.
Finally, this book will show you how to minimize the impact of migration on an organization, mitigate the risk in a migration, and troubleshoot failed migrations.
