I have two separate forest and now the business would like to join them together.
User count is around 200.  The users are split between the two.

One domain has a higher number of servers.

My thoughts are take the domain with the higher number of servers and migrate the other forest into that  - using the ADMT 3.1.   I may find out in the coming days they would like to have a new clean forest and migrate everything into that.

The recent domain migrations I have been involved in, the Quest AD migrator product was purchased for.

Can someone provide information of links on how I can change the workstation’s domain and the user’s domain and migrate or share their old profile?

Thank you.
