Active Directory Migration
Posted on 2004-11-04
At present I have 3 DC running in a Windows 2000 environment. The PDC,ABC, is running Windows 2000 Server, another DC, ABC1, is also running Windows 2000 Server and the Exchange 2003 server, ABC2, is running Windows 2003 Server.
I would like to create a new domain.
Take the machine that is called ABC1, and scrub it and install Win2k3. It
would therefore act as the PDC in the new domain, TESTING.COM
Install an Active Directory Integrated zone
Create a trust relationship between old domain,TEST.COM and new domain, TESTING.COM
Install Active Directory Migration tool in the new domain created.
Move the user account and groups to the new domain
Install the Exchange Migration tool in target domain
Move mailboxes to new domain
Uninstall Exchange 2003 from the server called ABC2
Add it to new domain
Remove the server called ABC, install WIN2K3 on the server and add to the new domain
Transfer role of PDC emulator back to this system
Is this plan doable to create the new domain.
Is the process correct for adding the server which presently has Exchange on it to the new domain
I would like when the server running exchange is added to the new domain it is a Member server, how do I achieve this.
Are they any steps I am missing to accomplish the goal. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
