Guide/Overview of migrating servers and clients to new windows domain
Posted on 2006-10-25
Right now all of our clients and servers are in a child domain (ie.... childcompany.parentcompany.com). We are having issues with getting a Global catalog to work for our site. I've done so much troubleshotting at this point without much luck. I don't believe there is a configuration issue. There must be some corruption in our AD databases.
I could go on and on about the troubleshooting we've done....but let me say here is what I would like to do: Build a new domain that isn't apart of our parent company (ie only childcompany.com) and then of course migrate our existing clients and servers to the new domain. I know this is a big project.
I think I have a good idea of what all is involved in migrating existing clients. But, I am looking some sort of guide or overview of this process though. Maybe some tips and pitfalls to watch out for.
