    Not sure why there are TWO tasks

    If you wanted to migrate accounts from one domain to another in same forest and later on you again will migarte same accounts from that domain to another forest, why don't you migrate those accounts from source domain in one forest to another forest in 1st attempt ?

    Anyways, what you are trying to do is possible with ADMT 3.2 - Microsoft Freeware tool
    ADMT can handle intra forest and inter forest migrations

    Check official ADMT guide
