Hello All,
 I am searching for online MS documentation for Migrating File servers through ADMT 3.2 but unable to find.
 I have 2003 file server in source domain without DFS.
I already have migrated all groups, users and computers from source domain to target with SIDHistory.Also I have enabled SIDHIstory and disabled SID Filtering over forest trust to faciliate cross forest file share access.
 
Anybody can provide me high level steps for File server migration through ADMT OR can validate below steps please
 
First use normal ADMT computer migration wizard to migrate file server from source domain to target domain with all security translation option selected (Shares, registry, files and folders and so on) in replace mode.Once server domain membership changed and get rebooted,then use ADMT security translation wizard to translate built-in security principles with SID mapping file.
 
OR
 
Directly disjoin server from source domain and join to target domain and then use ADMT security translation wizard to translate security from source domain to target ?
 
I am confused, which method will be perfect ?
 
Thanks in advance.

Hello everybody,

I'm starting to do the planning for migration with ADMT and came across the following questions.

What is the correct order of migration with ADMT in the case that involves the File Server?

The correct order is that?

1 - Users.
2 - Groups.
3 - Client Computers account.
4 - File Server Computer Account.

The correct order for migrating accounts is as below.

Migrate Groups
Migrate Service Accounts
Migrate Managed Service Accounts
Migrate User Accounts
Translate Local User Profiles
Migrate Workstations and Member Servers
Migrate Domain local Groups

This is the correct order for doing a cross forest migration.
