Consolidating somewhat with our parent company - need to move our domain into their forest. I've read alot already on using ADMT, but have a more general question. Can I move our domain directly into a new child domain in their tree, or do I have to move our domain into a new tree first? We are both at the Windows 2003 functional level.

I would create a new child domain in the destination forest, migrate your accounts, then bring your old servers over (demote and promote) and rejoin all your client machines

Just to clarify:

We are currently companyA.com in our own forest.

The forest we are moving into has companyroot.com with 2 child domains: companyB.companyroot.com and companyC.companyroot.com

So... we can create a new child domain - companyA.companyroot.com, and move our domain directly to it?
