  • Moving between domains with same name

    Hi,
    I have a question, has anyone moved a computer between two domains with the same name?

    Issue is: Two offices, with different domains with same name.

    Moving computer between offices, will there be issues of removing computer off one domain and joing the other? bare in mind they have the same domain name?


    You advice is appreciated?

    Domain name does not matter (except with the same name, you cannot establish a trust)

    Only solution is to:
    Disjoin from first domain
    Join to second domain

    And find out who created two domains with the same name and do something nasty involving rubber hoses and rusty knives

      Thanks!

      I was thinking that would work too but just wanted to double check with smarter people like yourself.


      I agree with working over the guy with rubber hoses and rusty knifes!


      It was originally three sites with three individual domains with the same name.

        I had that with 5 sites -- all the same domain name so no trusts possible. Ended up blowing away the whole infrastructure and starting from scratch

          Thats what I am trying to avoid!

          If you sure we can dis-join from one domain and join another without too much issues then thats good enough for me.

            As far as moving computers goes, thats all
            If you need to access resources in the other domain it is a very different ballgame and if you have e.g. Exchange involved, things can get "interesting"

            IMHO look at your current environment(s) and what you need to achieve and then plan it in total, not as individual activities

              I know what your saying, it is just the client is doesnt want to spend money so recommending a complete overhaul is out of the question.


              Thanks again.

                  Client has a choice -- spend some money now or lots more later
