How do I transfer AD settings from one hosted environment to another hosted environment?
Posted on 2011-09-14
We currently have a domain set up with a hosted provider, in a virtualized environment. There are about 100 users, 10 groups, 3 OUs, and 2 GPOs configured within AD. This is a Server 2008 domain, all virtualized using Hyper-V. We are currently looking to switch hosted providers. What would be the best practice or procedure for migrating / transferring the AD / Domain settings?
We are going to name the domain / servers at the new location with the same name structure as they are currently configured.
I have tried the AD Migration Tool, but it appears that both domains need to be accessible to perform the task.
Thank you for your help.
