ADMT – How to migrate users and computers from domain to the other

Thursday, May 9, 2013 3:57 PM
  1. As a first step you should prepare SQL server within destination domain, and install ADMT on server within destination domain. I am going to use Domain Controller for this role, what might not be a best practice. In production env DC should remain untouched. SQL 2005 Express SP3 is recommended for this build.


  2. Then we have to create DNS conditional forwarding to source domain

  3. Choose what you want to migrate

  4. Select Source and destination domain and DC

  5. Select users you are going to migrate

     

  6. Select target OU

  7. Migrate old passwords

  8. And what is the most important migrate SID history

  9. You can migrate related groups as well

  10. Or skip some account properties

  11. Conflict handling

  12.

Is two-way domain trust required for this, or do you simply need domain admin rights on the source? 3/13/2014 9:40 PM | TJG

In my opinion yes, but don't consider it as official MS staemant. What I would do, in source domain I would set selective trust and allow access only for one admin account. Of course it respect rights delegation, so we are lookingin into Domain admins membership direction. Thanks for feedback ! 3/15/2014 6:16 AM | wchrabaszcz

Is this actually the easiest way of doing this? If yes, then it is not really hard to do it - Coupons papa johns information. 12/23/2015 2:55 AM | Herlene Cortez
