Local User and Group Migration (Same Domain)


This videos explains how to migrate local group and local user accounts (including passwords) between a Windows® 2008 R2 and a Windows® 2012 R2 member server in the same domain.


The source server "WIN2K8R2FS", running Windows 2008 R2 and the server "WIN2K12R2", running Windows 2012 R2 are  both members of the "DomainA.Com" domain. CopyRight2 and the Password Synchronization Add-on, are installed on the source system, to push the accounts to the target.

The local group "LGroup01" has the local users "User01", "User02", "User03" and the global group "grp1" as members. The local group "LGroup02" has the local users "User04", "User05" and "Domain Users" as members.

If newer Windows versions were used, or if running it on the target or a 3rd computer, the same settings could be used.
