I would recommend using FSMT ( File Server Migration Toolkit), this will preserve the settings after they have been migrated. It will also simplify the migration process and impact of the migration on users.


Download: Microsoft File Server Migration Toolkit

I hope this helps!

yes the permissions will no longer apply

by CG IT In reply to File Permissions

the old domain user and computer account's security identifiers are not migrated to the new domain, therefore the permissions assocated with those security identifiers eg the user and computer accounts,are not migrated as well. That is why everyone else says to migrate them.

Backup with Acronis True Image Server 9.0 with Universal Restore and then restore to your new server.

A pricey option, but it works beautifully.

Changing domains

by Gis Bun In reply to Will Changing of domain a ...

I worked once on migrating from one domain to another.

It's not as easy as you would think. Not only do you have to worry abount files but the accounts. You can't really have both domains running forever as is. Will be very confusing.

If JSmith changes from the OLD domain to the NEW domain, when he logs in to the NEW domain for the first time, it is as if he logged in for the first time.
