Data migration between domains


I'm Migrating data from 1 domain controller/file server to another domain controller/file server they are both on totally separate domains

I've disabled DHCP on the new infrastructure, Both network addresses are also different. 192.168.0/24 &

My question is will there be any issues having both the domain controllers on the same network while I do the migration?  I don't think it should be a problem, just need some clarification

I do not see any issues

As long as they have different NETBIOS names* I don't see an issue?

*Assuming in the same VLAN, if not then this won't be an issue either.

Adam BrownSenior Systems AdminCommented:
You can have as many Forests or Domains on the same network as you want. The only requirement is to ensure NETBIOS names are different, as mentioned. Each forest/domain will function without talking to the other unless you implement a trust setup. If you're moving from one domain to the second domain, you will want to do this. Also look into Active Directory Migration Tool (ADMT) to aid the process.
