I'm sure their are simple guides for this but i was wondering how easy it is to migrate from a child domain to a parent domain in Active Directory. We have a parent/child setup, and want to simplify the configuration as their is no need to have this type of setup. The problem is that 99.9 percent of all users, groups, policies etc run under the child domain and was wondering firstly what version of ADMT to use (2 or 3 or other?). I have aquired a new server which is going to be a new DC (of the parent domain) that holds the main roles, and secondly does anyone know of a straight forward guide to this type of migration? There seems to be lots of guides for nt to ad migration etc, but nothing for this type of migration?
Many thanks as usual
