To move users between domains tou have to use the Active Directory Migration tool -

or use the MoveTree utility - actually MoveTree is probably easier - see
active directory import wizard? are you using that to facilitate the move?

No i just right click the user > Move
Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

You can move users between domains in this way - you will need to use the ADMT to move the users

I'd still recommend ADMT - MS has deprecated MOVETREE for 2K3 Active Directory in favour of ADMT, so the latter is a more supportable method if you run into any issues with the process - MOVETREE in 2K3 should be reserved for only those object types that ADMT can't migrate such as contacts.
