Guys
Ideally i'd like to copy an existing AD structure into a new domain.
Test domain already exists and has a different name to that in the live environment.
What's the best way of going about this?
not sure i'd be able to run a system info restore due to different domain name.
Are there migration tools that can acomplish this?

yes you will have to have a trust between the two domains for this tool to work

no need to have a trust with the ADMT tool version 2.0
you can use the tool to migrate from SBS domain which does not support trust creation
