Resolution

goal
Can I move local groups, users and passwords from one workgroup or stand alone server to another?

fact
Server Consolidator 7.x

fact
Domain Migration Administrator 7.x

fix

Server Consolidator lets you migrate local groups from one server to another, but does not provide a method to migrate local users from one server to another. You can migrate local users from one server to another using Domain Migration Administrator (DMA) by specifying the source and target domains as \\servername.  However, this is NOT a supported scenario.  It will not be able to migrate passwords.



note
If you try to specify the Workgroup name for the domain name, you will receive a message that the 'domain is invalid'.

note

You will have to use an account that has the same username and password on each machine, i.e. shadow accounts.
