If you were about to deploy sharepoint and soon migrate all users from an existing domain (domainA) to a new one (domainB), would you create the SharePoint infrastructure in domainB and migrate it once all the users have moved or create it in domainB and let it be in a different forest until the time to migrate the users? Two two forests/domains would be fully trusted - would this work? Has anyone had experience with this?

If possible

Have domainA and DomainB have a bydirectional trust.

Setup and deploy sharepoint with Services and Farm Admin accounts created in DomainB.

I was taught to recreate the security groups that sharepoint creates in AD.
 
> SharePoint(OU)  **service accounts in the root
> SharePoint(OU) Sites (OU) Sales (OU) Members (SG)
> SharePoint(OU) Sites (OU) Sales (OU) Owners (SG)
etc
 
So with your new setup you could Add users from domain A into the Security groups of domain B (Since you have the trust)

There are many variations to how you could do this. This is the way I would do it.

Not saying it the best.

Best of luck

So basically do it all in the new domain, use the trust to give access to people in the old domain, and migrate later..?
