Backup / Transfer Data from Another Domain Environment

Hello Experts,
I need some general advice.

I need to transfer a few TBs of misc. data from one office to another. We are utilizing Symantec BackupExec > LTO tapes.

The offices are on 2 separate Microsoft Active Directory domains, and I want to try and ensure the recipient has full access to all the data, which includes file storage, Exchange mail boxes, proprietary applications running on Windows servers, etc...

What *general* steps should I think about to help make this transfer as easy as possible?  

I'm wondering, when the data reaches the recipient, will they immediately run into issues with access permissions, since the original domain is unavailable?

I'm thinking about adding a local (non-domain) username and password and distributing this between all the data/servers involved, but is this really necessary?

Thanks for your ideas!

Hello

I don't think you need that. I used Symantec BackupExec on two domains for files/exchange/AD backup and I always used the administrator account of both domain as agent logon account.
You can also create a copy of administrator account for that, but I preferd to use administrator account. At the file level the Domain Admin group should have the full control right (if some user say no, there is no backup)
