Dfs can be used to (Dfs-replication) copy and maintain synchronization.
To maintain flexibility going forward, using domain based shares maintains uniformity and flexibility to transition to a new server when needed transparently for the end user.

Hi,

You can use the "ADMT 3.2 tool " to migrate your AD and go through the below link 2 to perform the operation.

and for detailed explanation you can go through the Microsoft post:

Good luck!!!!!!!

When one has two servers, one simply needs to join the new server as another DC in the environment, there is no need for ADMT.
The replication will be handled ... Transfer of roles can then be done when the old server is ready to be retired though it is often best to have two DC's in the environment.
