Default migrating file share permissions from NT-> AD on the same servers

This is my problem. We have 100's of shares on all different servers.
All of these servers have been joined to our new 2003 AD domain, but we
still have a lot of shares with persmissions set with NT groups/users.
We want to migrate the permissions to their respective AD groups/user
accounts, but keep the same UNC paths and shares on the same servers.
All documentation I can find regarding file share migration to AD
(including FSMT), only reference migrating the shares to new servers.
That is not an option for us at this time. I don't see how I can use
FSMT without having to set up DFS and move all our shares to new
servers. Any suggestions?

Send a message via AIM to Win2kpatcher

So these current servers are running NT4.0 Server and were joined to a NT4.0 server and you then joined them to your new Server 2003 Domain, but they are all still running Nt4.0 server with the exception of your newly created 2003 Domain?

It is not an option to migrate the current NT4.0 Servers to 2003 Server, this is correct? Just want to be sure I have it all understood before I make reccomendations.

All the servers have been migrated to our AD domain. That is they have been upgraded to win2000, or win2003. I guess I should have clarified that. The issue is all of the shares still have permissions in the NT domain. We need to migrate the permission (basically, just copy them, then finally replace after verification) to the same groups we now have in our AD domain. Doing this manually would be a nightmare.
