Joining 2 domains

Hi,

I'm working for a company that has an AD domian named SCIA-ONLINE in Benelux. They also have a branch in Czech Republic. They have their own domain SCIACZ. SCIA-ONLINE has 2 sites (Belgium and Netherlands). What we want to do now is change SCIACZ to SCIA-ONLINE... There are about 50 users in Czech Republic, so I just added them manually in SCIA-ONLINE. So, I have all users in our domain already.

What I wanted to do is demote their domain controller. After that I want to use dcpromo again and make it a domain controller by adding it to the SCIA-ONLINE domain. So normally when this is done the servers will replicate and the users should be able to logon to SCIA-ONLINE again. I know the client computers will need to be joined to the new domain again, but we have someone over there that can do this.

Also, the shared folders over in Czech Republic are limited, so it's no big deal to set permissions manually again.

Is this a good approach or am I missing something?

That sounds fine, manual migrations like this tend to be more work on the client side than on the server side. But you have someone over there who will look after all their user profiles on their PCs?

Hi Chris,

Thanks for the reply. Yes, we have someone over there who can do this. Also, a lot of users work from their homes and don't even log on to the domain. We have a Sonicwall firewall and it uses local users in the firewall for authentication. There's no LDAP connection. To, the users just enter their credentials when accessing resources in our domain. There are just a few users in the office that really log on to the domain, so there's not much of client setup to do :-)

So you don't see any problem with what I would like to do?

With kind regards,;
Pascal
