"Migrating file and print sharing services from a Windows machine to a Linux box is time consuming and often prone to error. To perform such an endeavor manually, an administrator must set up hundreds (if not thousands) of user accounts, then create file and print shares, and then copy files from the Windows environment to Linux. This manual work can take hours, if not days, to complete properly. DAS Technology's LSP is a utility that automates the entire conversion process. The software automatically converts users and groups, and copies files from the Windows to Linux Server, but it also goes a step further. It can migrate any Web pages being served by an existing Windows machine to Apache Web server on a Linux machine, and can copy any FTP files and configuration parameters from the Windows environment to Linux. As an added bonus, it can also migrate the NT server's DNS and DHCP configurations.
