Hi there,

Am in the process of starting a domain migration and to begin with we want to test a certain amount of groups from one domain in the new domain. The problem we have is the sheer number of groups (thousands) so when we tried exporting to csv file and then importing on the other side we keep getting issues with the csv file.

Does anyone know of a third party tool / method of taking a bunch of groups, copying them and then re-importing in the new domain ?

Any  help would be great !!!

How are you doing the migration? You should be using the microsoft ADMT tool to migrate your users computers and groups. This has the functionality automatically built in as well as SID history.

we are using ADMT. The network is split into 3 domains so we only want to migrate some people at a time. As a result we want to test the group migration by creating copies of the relevant groups int the new domain wthout actually migrating them. This is why Im looking for a method of copying and exporting certain groups at a time - the csvde option is not really viable for us as we have tried but it keeps cirrupting etc...

thanks for you reply though ;-)
