migration to new active directory domain
Posted on 2014-11-10
I have been asked by marketing to make our old company name disappear from login prompts and shared drives. We have three domains currently in use, and these need to be changed to the new name of our company. That is all marketing cares about, is the appearance (what's new right - marketers only concerned with the surface). So, with that being said, I am looking for feedback so I can present decision makers with the following:
Problems we will encounter, downtime, cost, benefits (i don't think there will be any from a technical standpoint), any other information that could weigh into the decision to make this happen would be appreciated. Currently, I'm not looking for exact details on how to do this, but more birds eye view of what management should be made aware of in relation to business processes and problems that could be encountered because of this request. Any experiences and insight will be greatly appreciated.
