Thanks for posting!
>From your message, you want to know whether FSMT can be used to migrate all
shares and permissions on a "BDC" based on Windows NT 4.0 to Windows Server
Based on my research, the answer is positive. FSMT can run a BDC. However,
we don't run it on BDC. we install FSMT on the destination file server,
which should be a win2k3 server. NOTE: The source and destination domain
should have two-way trusts.
The File Server Migration Toolkit helps you copy files and folders from
servers running Microsoft Windows 2000 Server or Microsoft Windows NT
Server 4.0 operating systems to a server running Microsoft Windows Server
2003 operating systems or Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2003.
To ensure the security of files and folders after they are migrated to a
target file server, the File Server Migration Wizard applies permissions
that are the same as or more restrictive than they were on the source files
and folders, depending on the option you select. For example, if you do not
choose to copy security settings from the source to the target files and
folders, the wizard applies permissions to the target files, folders, and
shared folders by granting Full Control permission to the local
Administrators group of the target file server. If you select the Copy
security settings option, the File Server Migration Wizard copies all
security settings for files, folders, and shared folders, including NTFS
file system permissions, auditing, ownership, and shared folder
permissions. If you also select the Resolve invalid security descriptors
option, the wizard cleans up security descriptors whose security
identifiers (SIDs) cannot be resolved on the target file server.
