Migrating two NT domains into ADS
Posted on 2004-09-13
I currently have two NT 4 domains that we would like to migrate into a single ADS forest. Currently we have a UK PDC & BDC (both located in our UK office) and a US PDC & BDC (PDC in the UK, BDC in the US). In a test environment, I've setup a similar structure and successfully migrated the UK domain (ADS1 in the test) to ADS (ADS.com). But we are going to need to bring the second domain (ADS2) into ADS so that the users just need to be told to login to ADS rather than ADS1 or ADS2.
Ultimately we want to be able to show no differentiation between where the users log into, just a central ADS that we can then restructure the existing setup as we progress with group setups, objects and other administrative work.
I'm not sure if I'm approaching this the right way but from what I've been able to glean from training courses and info around the Web, it should be possible.
Any advice would be gratefully appreciated.
