Background:
We have one forest with a root domain that has two child domains, all domain controllers are server 2012 and all the domains are 2012 functional level.  

Problem:
We need to move several user accounts from the root domain to a child domain.  In server 2008 you can use ADMT, however ADMT isn't supported for server 2012 yet.  Does anyone know of another way we can move AD objects between domains in the same forest in a server 2012 functional domain?

Unfortunately you are out of luck. As you have stated ADMT is not compatible with server 2012 yet. The only way to accomplish this is to have 2 x 2008R2 servers 1in root and 1 in child domain and use ADMT and transfer the objects through these 2008R2 Dc's.

Other option is to wait until they have made ADMT compatible.
