User impact when migrating from the old AD domain into the new AD domain ?
Posted on 2015-02-08
Before I'm going ahead with the plan to migrate the AD from one domain to another using ADMT, I just wanted to know and cover all of the bases and possibilities of what is going to happen from the user perspective ?
1. What happened to the AD domain selection or dropdown that the user usually select during the Workstation or Windows Server logon process? Does the user account will be the same with the AD domain label difference ?
2. What happened to the user who is not logged off to the workstation, would they be able to log off and login as normal or their account / desktop will be broken ?
3. Do I have to manually exit the domain and then rejoin the new domain for the servers and the workstation ?
I need to know if the user will experience down time or anything that they need to be aware of the difference.
Note: There is no Exchange Server to worry about in this old domain.
