Two domains and two users - merging user account to one


S

Seay

(1) I have domain A and domain B

(2) I have user A in domain A and user A in domain B (basically same user
name but created at different time - different SIDS)

(3) I want to remove domain A but copy user A SID info into user A of
domain B - basically merge the SID of two accounts into domain B


Question:
=======

(1) How do I merge two accounts together into one account - merge SIDS of
two accounts into one account?

I HAVE NO Option such as delete destination account and recreate so PLEASE
do not provide me that alternative or explanation - even if it is the
easiest.


Thank you kindly.

You cannot really merge the accounts -- pick one and
remove the other.

Give the remaining account the same privileges (one of the
main reason for NEVER giving an "account" permissions on
a file always placing the user in a GROUP and giving the
group permissions) on all objects and allow the remaining
account owner to take ownership of all the files etc owned
by the user being removed.

You might use the ResKit "subinacl.exe" or other tools to
help straighten out the permissions.

Make sure you pick (or merge) the correct user PROFILE.

I know that NetIQs migration tool has a Merge option for migrations, although
I've never used it. You could always manually populate the sidHistory field
with the sid from Domain A as well (using something like adsiedit).

Merging Windows.old or crashed/different installation with a new installation

It can be done, I just finished!

Well I just spent an hour and a half writing each step (I just finished my merge between a Windows.old/crashed install with a new Custom installed one - Windows 7 64 bit Enterprise) with reference links and links to software and when I submitted it it said I wasn't logged in but it says I am on this page. Hopefully the system administrator can grab a cached version of this, if not reply and it should send me some email and I'll post it again (This time I'll save it first to a local file.)
