Migration Domain


F

Fred

Hi,

Two years ago we migrated from an NT domain to an Active Directory Domain.
As our company is spread over several European countries, we choose as
design for AD one forest/domain with delegated OU's for each county.
A couple of months ago, are company has sbeen taking over by another
company, and they want each country to migrate to their AD but as a child
domain under their Forest/Domain structure. xyz.be
What is the best approch for this? Is it possible to rename the domain and
add to to the new forest?

Regards,

Fred

You can not add one forest to another, this is not possible. What you will
need to do is create a new child domain and then create a trust between the
two forests and then run a migration tool such as the free one provide by
Microsoft named Active Directory Migration Toolkit v3.

You only choice is to create the relevant child domains under the "new"
tree root and move the objects using ADMT from the old domain to the
newly created one.

Hello Fred,

As said from the others, you can not do it that way, use ADMT to migrate
the new domain to a child domain.

ADMTv3 (if Windows NT Server 4 SP4 or higher is the source domain OS):

ADMTv3.1(if Windows Server 2000 or higher is the source domain OS):
