active directory

We already have 2 domain controllers in  our organization

1.world-hq1.com (having all fsmo roles)
2. world-hq2.com (this is also DC)

We want to build another dc name with world.com ( having all fsmo roles) in our organization.

How can we replicate info from world-hq1.com 2. And world-hq2.com (this is also DC)
To world.com ( which is another DC) preferably only user groups from world-hq1.com 2. And world-hq2.com

any tools we can use , they are all on premise servers

Hello,
you can do it by creating domain trust.
See for example this:

one would normally create the forest world.com and then add the domains hq1.world.com and hq2.world.com.

But how should I sync the user groups from domains hq1.world.com and hq2.world.com to world .com

will it sync on its own or what tools I should use

Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

 
Tomas ValentaIT ManagerCommented:
Just to be sure we understand your needs - Trusts between domains or forests are used for authentication purposes, so users from one domain can logon in second domain (or different forest - it is your case) by their account from first domain and vice versa. So there is no data sync only authentication request is forwarded to the trusted partner and I trust to response.

I am giving you example.

company called -Johnson-hq.com I have right now 2 DC with name as Johnson-hq1.com and Johnson-hq2.com
johnson hq1.com has all fsmo roles

now I want to add Johnson.com as I have purchased that domain into a separate DC
want to have all fsmo roles in it. but need to sync users around 5000 from Johnson-hq1.com and Johnson-hq2.com to Johnson.com

first step would be to create two way trust between these 2 forests, but how will I sync? so how will data sync?

Tomas ValentaIT ManagerCommented:
and what is the reason of syncing users ?

pramod1Author Commented:
actually my IT planner wants to finally upgrade to office 365 so that all user attributes sync from Johnson.com to office e365 instead running directory synchronization from two other dc's as he has made Johnson.com as primary tenant in office 365

Tomas ValentaIT ManagerCommented:
OK, now it is clear. For your scenario is used Azure AD connect:

I  am reading the article but I need to sync all users from Johnson.com still I need to sync between on premise servers?

Tomas ValentaIT ManagerCommented:
All domains will sync with Azure AD connect and Azure AD connect will be single AD partner for O365

pramod1Author Commented:
so you mean even I don't sync to Johnson.com from these other  2dc's it will sync to Johnson.com in 0365

but then what is the point in creating Johnson.com which my IT person wants

pramod1Author Commented:
Johnson-hq is a forest and Johnson.com will also be another forest?

pramod1Author Commented:
we want 1 forest

Tomas ValentaIT ManagerCommented:
The best scenario is one forest but from your request it looks like your IT will not do it.
The better should be if you send me your current Domain structure.
Because if you have forest ".com" with domains world-hq1.com and world-hq2.com
then you can add third domain "johnson.com" and you do not need any sync inside, because
all domains are in one forest.

I need to sync between two on premise forests so that users sync from 1 forest to 0365
