  • New AD forest with Exchange and Sharepoint in original forest

    Hi all
    I have a client that is currently 2 organisations but one of them wants to become completely independent and split off from the other. Currently they share the same AD domain, Exchange server, sharepoint, file servers, etc.
    I have been asked to set them up with a new AD forest\domain and migrate the user accounts to the new forest\domain. This is phase 1 in the rather large migration project. Once users and computers have been migrated I will then be looking at migrating Exchange and Sharepoint over (and the other services) as phase 2 - not straight away so mailboxes and sharepoint resources will be accessed from the new accounts in an interim period.
    My question to all out there is (1) Will the ADMT be sufficient to migrate the user accounts to the new forest? (2) Does anyone see any issues with Exchange permissions (Exchange 2007) once user accounts are migrated? I was planning on resetting permissions on mailboxes to give the new accounts access via the Forest trust (2) How about sharepoint? Is this a simple procedure of configuring permissions in the same way on team sites etc?
    I have heard that Exchange 2007 can be a real pain in a cross-forest scenario. Any advice, tips or gotchas to look out for would be much appreciated.
    Many thanks
Working...
