Note that in case you use Windows authentication with VisualSVN Server
the accounts are controlled your Active Directory and should be
managed by Active Directory tools, too.

As far as I know it is possible to migrate CVSNT repositories to
Subversion, but I am not aware about the suggested or recommended
approach. VisualSVN Server users successfully migrate from CVSNT to
VisualSVN Server.
