How to migrate users to a new forest/domain
Posted on 2006-06-12
I have been reading many articles on here about how to migrate users and mailboxes - I have some questions. Fisrt here is what I am doing:
1.) Moving from one 2003 forest to a brand new 2003 forest
2.) In doing this, need to move email, accounts, groups, computer accounts and local machine profile to preserve settings
I have the brand new domain up and running and they are in a full trust
I have gone through the ADMT and migrated a group to test the process
I am confused on the process. If I run ADMT this moves the accounts but not the email boxes. Is there a tool out there somewhere that moves them all at one time. In using ADMT, and then later using Exchange migration the accounts are not linking up correctly. I have to go into the mailboxes and give each user access to the mailbox. This isnt fun for over 2000 users. Is there a standar practce to do this?
Thanks for your help!
