I am charged to collapse a child domain into a parent domain and have the following requirements:
child domain controller will become DC of parent domain
user/group accounts be moved into the parent AD structure
machine accounts will be able to seamlessly logon to parent domain with existing user names and no funniness on local profiles.
I have used the ADMT tool before and uhh well i was wondering if there was a more simple approach to this that someone has done already (my experience was a cross forest migration and it was somewhat ugly)
