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

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

To move users between domains tou have to use the Active Directory Migration tool - http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=6f86937b-533a-466d-a8e8-aff85ad3d212&displaylang=en

or use the MoveTree utility - actually MoveTree is probably easier - see

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.
