Cloud Class® Course: MCSA MCSE Windows Server 2012

This course teaches how to install and configure Windows Server 2012 R2.  It is the first step on your path to becoming a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE).

In a Cross Forest, the steps to migrate users are quite complicated and even in the official articles of Technet there is no clear recommendation on which approach to take .. From an experience, I mention and simplify which way to go and how to use Powershell to make your life easy in such projects.

Excel allows various different methods to link Excel files to each other. This includes relative paths, mapped drives (or the local drive) and UNC paths. UNC paths are the least robust of the three.

In an Exchange Crossforest migration, the distribution groups can be a very complex operation that would cause loss of time, lots of issues and continued headaches if not solved in a timely manner. I had to do a similar project so I created a script to ease this process.

I wonder, have you ever been in this kind of situation that you couldn't find the owner of the number who has just called you, and you were certain that this was a company number, which means it should be fairly easily be found in Outlook address book or in Active Directory?
Except for admin tools I have in hand I also tried to search for the phone number in Outlook without success. How about you?

That Intel tool is only useful for checking for the Intel Active Management Technology flaw.  That's an old flaw.

This is the Meltdown and Spectre problem which is a new flaw.

Very useful information but I don't get it one thing:

Move-ADDirectoryServerOperationMasterRole -Identity “TCLDC01”
- -identity is a TARGET server right ? So this is a server where role will be transfered to.

Move-ADDirectoryServerOperationMasterRole -Identity “Target_DC_name”

So if yes, then why you checking other server if all roles were moved

All 5 Roles has been transferred to TCLDC02

Or maybe I don't get it.

@Tom - It looks like the PowerShell screenshots are incorrect. Using the get-help Move-ADDirectoryServerOperationMasterRole command it clearly states "The Identity parameter specifies the directory server that receives the roles." In the screenshot above it should have shown TCLDC02.
