Interforest user and group migration

Hi,

We are migrating four domains into one and the OU structure is different in new domain to the other four domains. Reading through the ADMT guide it suggests that we begin the user account migration process by migrating all users.  

I cannot find a way to migrate all  user accounts and groups, specify a source OU and Target OU for each user and group.

Is there a way to use a vb script to read an Excel spreadsheet that has the User name, Source OU and Target OU, copy the user, add the original SID and copy the password for all users?

Thanks

You can create a file to do this and specify source and target OU. Parameter are:

SourceDomain="source_domain_name"
SourceOu="source_ou_path"

TargetDomain="target_domain_name"
TargetOu="target_ou_path"
