High-level task or steps to integrate 2 or more companies in AD

Hi Experts,

I am in the process of collecting as much information as possible regarding all tasks required to integrate or merge 2 companies based on the following criteria:

DNS [Zones, type of zone, records, CNAME, MX records, so forth]

Active directory, NS,   WINS, DHCP, FRS, and DFS

Migrate resources from one company to another one as part of company acquisitions


I know there is too much information regarding this, but if you could provide high-level steps, links, blogs that we can refer to, would be really appreciated

Santhosh has a good high level flow chart  http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/5310.active-directory-migration-high-level-steps-and-flowchart.aspx

Do you know what migration tool you are going to use.  The ADMT guide has a lot of great information.

Would one company be merging into the others AD or both into a new clean AD?

Thanks

Mike
