Hey guys,

I require advice on moving users from the old domain to new domain.

My client has only one AD Domain Controller operating on Server 2008 r2. This server is connected to a server 2012 r2 member server with exchange 2013 running off it. Recently the NTDS.dit file on the domain controller got corrupted, and messed their network.

Since the client does not have a backup, I recommended that we get the servers redone.

Therefore I have setup the new servers from scratch using server 2012 r2 and exchange 2013. I have used the same domain name from old setup. All has gone well but I require a piece of advice with moving users from the old domain to the new domain. What tool/utility can i use to move the user accounts from the old DC server to the new DC server.

I am not keen on retaining the SID as this is a completely new setup.

An urgent response shall be appreciated.
