NT Domain Consolidation

By danfall4 ·
I'm trying to find the best NT donain consolidation tool to use to consolidate two NT domains. I was thinking of using FastLane Consolidator. Anyone care to share their experiences in this endeavor? What do you consider to be the best tool availabletoday?
Some details:

tcpip is the only protocol running.
No netware on the lan/wan
Some remote users connect via VPN.
Lan has IIS4.0 and SQL 7
Clients are mostly win98 with a few NT4 WS
Clients are win98


Thanks

NT Domain Consolidation

by glaurian In reply to NT Domain Consolidation

From my expierience it is easier to establish a trust and gradually phase out the unwanted domain. This virutally eliminates downtime, maintains security and eliminates the need to use a third party security tool. I don't have a problem with third party tools, most work well. But at the domain migration level, I don't even trust MS.

I would have to agree with the other response. I have two domains that I administer, which eventually will be merged into one (NT4 first, then migrated to Win2k or XP in 12-18 months). The simplest way is to create the two-way trust and begin the process of preparing your domain for consolidation (use the time to clean up directory structures, unused users and groups, etc).
