My company is in the process of merging 2 separate domains into one domain. It is not going to be a forklift type so, the users will have an account in each domain until all of the shared resources have been completed moved at which point the 2way trust will be removed and the old domain will be shutdown. My question is how can I get a dump of the security rights that the users have on the current servers so, when the server is moved into the new domain I can setup their new domain account with the same access as their current in the soon to be shutdown domain. I have used accesschk to get general access but, it doesn't go into detail enough for me to get the access rights the same. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

You can use ADMT to migrate the file server the permission will be intact.http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/File_Servers/Active_Directory/Q_28290141.html#a39637776

If you want to migrate user/computers from one domain to new domain using ADMT tool you need to create trust relationship between two domain.

You need to understand nuances of ADMT and its working before you actually taken on migration production env.Also, its much better if you can simulate in a lab environment for successful result. I have below link which might help you to understand this. Start from reading ADMT guide first.
