I have AD Domain (mydomain.com) that has child domains I also have separate domains.
I have built another domain named the same, mydomain.com.
Now I want all the objects in the old domain to be migrated to the new domain,but since they have the same name, migration will get tough.
I was wondering if I drop a new DC in the existing Domain, just to have objects replicated to it, then take offline and do the migration and restructuratuin of AD for the new domain.
I guess I still will have to migrate the child domains to the parent domain. because I don't want to have child domains in the new domain. I will also need to migrate the objects from separate domain to the new domain
has anyone donae this type of migration, and how hard/easy it is?
I thought about rejoining computers to the new domain will be much easier than migration, though it will have some downtime during the reboot of servers.
