How to Move / copy SID History for a user from one domain to another

We have a user account in domain A and the same user account in domain B (same person).  In other words the same user (jsmith) logs onto two domains as (jsmith).  Is there a way to copy SID history of the user from Domain A to Domain B?

Use the ADMT (Active Directory Migration Toolkit) and you can copy his SID from Domain A to Domain B.  You'll need to read through the documentation and establish the necessary trust relationship between the domains as part of the prep work.

I have heard that Robocopy can do this... you need to migrate the user then the files.

We have the admt tool and we are very familiar with how this works, , however the accounts were manually created on both sides of subsiquent domains.  Neither can be deleted.  So we want user on domain B SID to be added user on Domain B.

You can use the ADMT to accomplish this.  The user can have multiple SIDs on both domains.  Copy Domain A SID to Domain B, and copy Domain B SID to Domain A.  You can have the same account in both domains until you complete the merger and then remove the old / un-needed information.
