I have an initiative this year to move our AD environment from Windows 2003 over to Windows 2008. Since our company has grown & changed I decided to build a completely new AD forest & domain that better reflects my company, and over time just phase out my old 2003 AD domain.
My question involves setting up a Trusted Domain between the new AD domain, (AD-2008), and the old AD domain, (AD-2003). What is the best and SAFEST way to configure a trusted domain relationship between these two domains so that I can go workstation by workstation & user by user to move them over to the new domain?
I want to make this as seamless as possible, BUT my FIRST priority is "safety", meaning I do not want to risk in any way, corrupting or impacting my existing AD-2003 domain.
Any help would be appreciated,
