Active Directory Migration, 2 Companies merging and forming 3 companies and want to bring in another one
Posted on 2007-11-20
Thanks for all of your help with the last problems, I had. I need a step to step guide on how to achieve this objective. Our company B is currently bought out by company A. Basically the CEO who invested in our company is fixing to create a Holding company called C and Company A and B will reside under it like in the diagram showed below:
Company C - Will have own email But will share information like CRM and Tools with Company A and B.
Company A - Will have their own email like firstname.lastname@example.org, but will share information like CRM with Company C and A
Company B - Will have their own email like email@example.com, but will share information with Company B and C
Currently Company A and B have their own domain and forest. Company C domain hasnt been created.
I was thinking to create
Company C domain and email first >
Create Company A as a Child Domain but confused about how to create email since emails have to be the same and cant be firstname.lastname@example.org.
Create Company B as a Child Domain but confused abt emails again, how to keep them a same.
We might be bring Company D and we want the solution scalable so it would be easy to integrate Company D when that comes in.
Need Advice and Help on how to go about this desperately. I know tools like ADMT can be used for migrating users from one server to another but what can we do to retain emails when the domain willl be changing.
Thank you, Experts
