Hi
I have a sbs 2003 sp2 domain that i need to migrate into a existing domain, does anyone know  the process i should follow? The sbs server has ADDS, File, Print, Exchange, DNS,DHCP installed. So i need to migrate the groups, users, workstations, files and email over to the existing domain. any help would be great

cheers

SBS was not intended to work with other domains, so what you want to do can be tricky.

I don't like when objects have multiple SID references that would be the case with objects transferred using the Active Directory Migration Tool (ADMT).  And frankly, there can be issues with this tool.  But that may be your best bet.

Otherwise, you could recreate the users in the new/other domain and migrate the profiles over using a tool like the User Profile Wizard.
