Hi ,
I'm looking for a tool to migrate users/group between 2 AD forest.
I already found ADMT v3.2 , but the one I had is only for Win2008. Is there an update of this tool ? in order to support Win2012 servers ?
Thanks

There is no version of ADMT for 2012.

I quote from Microsoft's below doc (see page 18):

ADMT v3.2 can be downloaded from Microsoft Connect (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=401534).

All previous versions of ADMT are deprecated.

ADMT v3.2 has recently been updated and re-released. The version remains v3.2 because it’s functionally the same as its predecessor (that is, there are no new features). This final release includes various bug fixes and can be used with all supported Windows operating systems and versions of Windows Server Active Directory:

• The server where you install ADMT can run any supported version of Windows Server, including Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2012.

• The source and target domain controllers must be writeable, but they can run any supported version of Windows Server with a user interface (not Server Core), including Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2012.

Keep in mind that connect is for prerelease and beta software. Some groups and software is public, but not yet "released" while some is private and not even available outside of a specific invite. Either way, it usually is unwise to recommend connect downloads for production.

I found this (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/active-directory-migration-tool-versions-and-supported-environments(v=ws.10).aspx) Technet article. It is supported by Microsoft but just that the download is still not available in Microsoft Download Center and can be downloaded from Microsoft connect. As far as I can see it doesn't say that it is not to be used in Production (though the download is only from Microsoft Connect... at least for now).

The new ADMT v3.2 is being used in production. We are prepping for 2 cross-forest migrations.
