Migration from Child Domain to an independent Active Directory Forest

By mike.playboy ·
Brief layout: Our current infrastructure is a child domain that depends on 2 FSMO roles and our internet connection is through the parent's leased line.

parent= root.local
child= office.root.local

I am running into all sorts of security issues depending on the parent domain for everything that requires modification of schema or enterprise admin rights. So what I would like to do is migrate all user accounts and Exchange mailboxes to a brand new forest/domain and leasing our own Internet connection to make us totally independent.

I was wondering if anyone has done anything remotely close to this. If possible provide me and others browsing the forums a brief lessons learned or any road blocks that we should expect. This project is in the infant stages and I'm gathering data and setting a date for 2009. Feel free to post anything helpful!
