best way to move user from one domain to another domain in the same forest

Hi Experts,

My situation is below:

I have setup a new domain (NewDomain) and would like to move some users in the old domain (OldDomain) to the new domain, these users have mailboxes, OCS accounts and misc network share permissions in the old domain.

Is there an easily way to simply move the user account to the new domain and preserve everything?

both domains are using windows 2008 functional level

Everyone suggest to use ADMT and that's correct :) Other option is to use 3rd party tool i.e. from Quest company. But you mentioned that you have also Exchange account (mailbox) for that user. Then you should also use Exchange Migrator (mailmig.exe) with ADMT to migrate user's mailbox

although it you have excchange in the same org then it will just  be a simple mailbox migrate
