Slowly Migrating to new domain, help!

By gdagostino ·
Here's the scoop.

I have a current forest setup at work. Example; domain.lan
This domain contains 2 domain controllers (win2000), a couple of member servers and an Exchange 2000 server.

The domain.lan was setup years ago and now we would like to create a new domain in a new forest newdomain.lan. The reason we want to create newdomain.lan is because the old AD is giving us tons of problems because it wasn't setup correctly years ago.

We also purchased Exchange 2k3 and will want to migrate all users from domain.lan ad to newdomain.lan. Is there a way to migrate everyone to the new ad and exchange while having domain.lan still active!

Does anyone have any suggestions or concerns with this solution.

Any feedback would be appreciated!

use the ADMT and exmerge. ADMT will migrate everything from the old domain to the new domain.

BUT, if your security group membership, file folder permission setup, OUs and GPOs are your problem, you might have as much problem sorting those out in a new domain by migrating everything over than just sorting em out in the old domain.
