You are trying to migrate from one E2K server to another E2K server?

First, in Active Directory, there is no PDC or BDC. I would make them part of the same domain and at least have a Domain Controller and Global Catalog server at each location (not necessarily the same server). See below for more information.

If you just want to move the data from one E2K server to another, then you can join the same Admin Group within Exchange 2000 setup and then move the mailboxes - within Active Directory Users and Computers -> Exchange Tasks.

If you want both servers to run Exchange 2000 and have mailboxes on each, join the new E2K server to the same Admin Group and then create a Routing Group (RG). Configure a Routing Group Connector between the two RG. Move the mailboxes that you want to move from server A to Server B.

There are other paths to follow but these may be the most clean path.
