Move a domain from the forest

By dgolic ·
Is there a way to move entire domain from an exisiting forest to a new forest. I have a subdomain in the exisitng forest with FQDN I want to make isolate it and make it a forest root for a new forest with the same name. Is there a way to do this without creating a new forest root and migrating all the objects from old domain to a new one.

You will have to create a forest root and migrate the objects.

You cannot cut and paste domains between forests no matter what Microsoft leads you to believe.

I have two seperate domains, there was a company name change and a new domain was created. how would i move all the existing servers frm the old domain into the new one, and if that is possible will the existing permissions carry over?
