I inherited a win2k network with four domains. This is a mess. I have four domains. I only have around 100 users and would like to consolidate the network into one domain with appropriate OU's instead. I have a parent domain A. A child of A named B. Two children of B named C and D. I have a DC in each of C and D with users, files, permisions and such. I want to consolidate all this to one domain named A. Do you guys know of some literature on this subject? There are no DC's in any other domains (A and/or B). Why this was set up this way, I don't know. What I do know is that this mess needs to be cleaned up by me. We have a lot of critical data and permisions to go with. Is there a painless way to keep the permissions and user rights to go with the data if moved to another domain? I guess I have too many questions in regard to this. If there were some sort of literature on this exact topic, would you guys enlighten me?
