Domain Migration, Forest Root Domain Name

Suggestions on the migration??
Current forest name: company.local
Existing company has been acquired. New Company Registered DNS name: Lucas.com
Current Services, Exchange 2010, SQL 2008, File Services.

- Thinking of naming the new forest "corp.lucas.com" ??
- Create a two-way trust between source and target domains
- Build new Exchange 2013 infrastructure in new domain
- Use ADMT to migrate user accounts and mailboxes to new domain - not sure about this process
- Use ADMT to migrate workstations and member servers (SQL, W2K12 File Server)

Can this be done gradually on weekends?? Migrate 20 - 50 at a time??
Any suggestions on getting this done??

Yes, it can be done gradually. There well be a lot of moving parts so you'll want to create a couple test accounts so you can see the behavior, plan for it, and catch any issues.

That depends on your environment. That could be complete. Or it coild completely be skipping some LOB app that'll be a huge pain point.
