Exporting registry / group policy etc

Discussion in 'Computer Support' started by BertieBigBollox, Nov 10, 2009.

  1. Got a Windows 2000 server that has some of the default settings
    changed in an attempt to make it more secure.

    I've moved from one RAID array to another. I used Ghost but then had
    to do a Windows 2000 in place upgrade to get it to work again. By
    doing this, will all my registry settings / group policy settings etc
    be defaulted? I know all my patches and SP will need to be redone.
    (Also, in the original version we deleted things like games, media
    player etc).

    I've still got a copy of the old server. If necessay, can I export
    group policy / registry settings, do the windows install and then re-

    Reply to replies to your posts in the original thread. As stated, you
    *can't* switch drives on a windows 2000 computer. You *have* to reinstall.

    "contributed" in 24hoursupport.helpdesk:
    Promote the old server to a PDC, then promote the new server to a BDC.
    Replicate the settings from the old server to the new server, demote both
    servers to stand-alone and you're done. Takes about 5-10 minutes.

    Yes, but what about the enum key. Without being able to import that it
    means nothing. Sounds like some kiddy is messing with equipment he's not
    allowed to.
