Yes, old server is both AD DC and fileserver.

Had to leave this project for a while but I think i'm on top of it now.
Went for RID in the end, just have to figure out how to best copy all files
from oldserver to newserver, but I think I'll figure it out.
I am very gratuful for all your help! I'll make a donatation.
