Migrate OU in Windows Server 2003

Hello Guys

Im deploying a new Domain Controller. Actually I have mydomain.com and I want to migrate all users to mynewdomain.com. Im using ADMT v3 which is very useful, I can successfully migrate users and groups, but I cant find a way to migrate every OU. If you can give a hint I would appreciate it.

I need to migrate all users and keep the same Organizational Units, but all I have been to do so far is to migrate single users. Is there a way to make it as a batch?
Thanks.

You can't migrate an OU.  Only security principals (Groups, Users and Computers) can be migrated.

Simply recreate them on the new domain.  It's fairly easy.

You may be able to use LDIFDE to export your OU structure from the source domain, manipulate it to fit the target, then import the manipulated LDIFDE file into the target domain.

Hope this helps

Better to use DSQUERY to get them all into a text file, make the domain name change in this text file and use DSADD to recreate them if there are lots.
