I have windows 2003 DC and exchange 2003 as another DC in same domain. apart from these we have got other member servers and SQL servers in same domain. we have got 120 users who are part of this domain.
Now we need to change the domainname and it will be a new name (.local). the tasks to be done are as
1) new DC setup with new domain (either it is going to be 2008 DC or can we have 2003 server itself)
2) migrate all users from existing domain to new one - is there any tool where we can migrate the user profiles
3) join all existing servers to new domain
when we make exchange server join to the new domain what are the major things to be taken care of?
also regarding main DC (old) to new domain what are the impacts
sql server tasks -
i would like to know the above so that we can prepare ourselves a smooth transition.
