ADMT Migration Help

Last Modified: 2013-12-28
I'm getting ready to use the ADMTv3 tool from my company to move our Windows NT 4.0 user accounts from our parent compan to our new AD domain I just have a couple of questions:

1) Do I need to run the Password Export Service ??
2) Does the ADMT tool do a good job of moving users local profiles over to there new domain profile on there computers?
3) I just need a one-way trust relationship that points to our new domain if I don't what users from the parent company to access resources on our domain correct?
Watch Question

1)Password Export service is required if you want the new accounts to have the same password as the accounts in the source domain.
2)Yes. Run Security translation wizard in one (replace acl in source with acl in target domain) or two steps (add new acl side by side, then remove old ones later at your convenience).

read from page 98 onwards. may be enough.


Beside the ADMT admin guide are there any other good sources out there describing the best practices of migrating users and profiles from NT 4.0 to Active Directory

If you only have a 1 way trust once your users are on the new domain how will they access resources on the old domain?
If you have permissions on your resources set up OK then you shouldn;t have a problem with people accessing resource they shouldn't be able to.

ADMT handles profile migrations very well, we migrated 2000+ and I don't think we ever had a profile problem.
Outlook migration is different!, lots of new exchange profiles to be created.
