Migrate IIS sites from one Hosting Provider to another Hosting Provider on different Active Directories.
Posted on 2016-11-04
I have a web hosting customer that is moving from their current Hosting Provider to another Provider. Their VM's are:
Windows 2012R2 = WEB2012, running IIS 8.5
Windows 2012R2 = SQL2012, running SQL 2012
Windows 2012R2 = DEV2012 (development server running IIS 8.5 and SQL 2012)
Windows 2012R2 = MAN2012 (management server running DNS and AD)
All servers are joined to the Domain (hosted.wobblyboot.com), running AD off the server called MAN.
The customer has had a new network built with a completely different Domain Name. Their VM's are:
Windows 2012R2 = WEB, running IIS 8.5
Windows 2012R2 = SQL, running SQL 2016
Windows 2012R2 = DEV (development server running IIS 8.5 and SQL 2016)
Windows 2012R2 = MAN (management server running DNS and AD)
All servers are joined to the different Domain (hosting.wobblyboot.com), running AD off the server called MAN.
My question is can ms webdeploy work in this configuration without having file permissions because the SID's don't match up. There are almost 100 users so I would rather not make each individual one on the new Domain unless I have to.
Do I need to setup some sort of VPN between the existing Provider and the new Provider, then join the new servers into the existing domain. Transfer all the fsmo roles to the new servers and demote the existing DCs etc?
Thanks for your help!
