Hello everybody,

Is there any way to organize the Active Directory after the objects are migrated with ADMT via console between forests?

My current problem is that another team made the migration of Active Directory Forest A objects to Forest B and put the objects in an OU only, but in the Forest A source there are hundreds of OUs and sub OUs created. Some OUs were created manually in Forest B, but there some way to put the objects already migrated into the right places equal to its origin?

It would be easy to script out creating the ou structure but to sort and move you would need some way of filtering. Do these object shave useful attributes like department = sales or something similar if you have that then that a very easy way.

If not then You are left with some very manual sorting or some complex script logic to grab the old ou and then match the user up and alter the ou if it doesn't match

The source might have number of OUs because of complex GPO requirements or to segregate and align objects function wise \ location wise

If you are not enforcing target OU structure and want to leverage same OU structure and GPO as source in target, then you need to create source OU structure in advance

After that you need to do daily migration plan
ADMT do not have built-in logic to segregate accounts based on attributes

as stated earlier either move objects based on attribute filter through AD LDAP Query
OR
Export all migrated users list and filter it with required attributes and move them to appropriate OUs
WiseSoft Bulk AD Users is friend here
The tool is freeware, can fetch any attribute from AD for all users and then you can move them according to attribute
