File Server Domain Migration

We are in the middle of a domain migration and are going user by user in terms of migrating outlook, profiles etc.
In the meantime all the servers including File Servers need to be migrated to the new domain. What is the best way to give permission to both sets of domain users? Meaning, once a user is migrated to the new domain he will no longer have access to the files in the file server so <newdomain>\<newuser1> needs to be added to the file server and similarly for all the groups too!
Since users will be done one on one we need to have both sets of users (already migrated and yet to migrate) to have access to their folders and other shares on the file server.

We have copied all the Users and Groups in the new AD and we are planning to manually add the new domain users and groups to our file server shares. Is there a better way of doing this?
Any ideas greatly appreciated! Thanks.

If you have not been using a migration tool such as ADMT or the Quest products to perform your migrations, there will not be an automated way for you to do what you are describing.

If you are using a migration tool, you can migrate servers in the same manner as workstations - the migration tool will re-ACL resources on the server so that resources secured by DomainA\User will be updated to DomainB\User.

No we are not using ADMT or any other migration tool. So i guess we are left to doing it manually (read PAIN) :)

Thanks for your prompt response. I will wait for a couple more days and close this out.
