Windows 2003 Migration
Posted on 2004-08-18
All, I am about to migrate my domain from NT4 to W2K3...
Could someone please clarify this point for me..
We have 100 desktops, 17 servers and 50 remote workers with laptops
My question is about the remote users; I can migrate the desktops using the computer migration tool which is fine, however its going to take a while (about a month) to get all the remote users in so I can migrate the laptops. To this end, will I need to keep the 17 windows based servers on the *old* domain until I get all latops migrated? I assume I will also have to keep the remote users logging into the *old* domain until I have migrated the laptops; I also assume that I can get them to log onto the *new* domain when I have migrated the laptops (obv I wil be cutting across the SID History)
Your urgent thoughts would be most appreciated
