What is the easiest way to migrate computers over to a new domain without losing user profiles, AD settings, etc?

We are planning on installing a new server which is going to be on a different domain than the current server.  All computers on the current domain will have to be changed to connect to the new domain.  Is there an easy way to "disjoin" a domain and join a new domain without losing user profiles, etc?   Would I need an "active directory migration tool" of some sort?

Hi,

You can Introduce a new domain controller with the new domain name and you can user Active directory migration tool to migrate users and computer from one domain to another domain. Below link has some details on the domain migration
