  • Old domain to new domain

    I have been given the task to migrate from an old windows 2000 domain x to a brand new 2003 domain called z. They will have nothing to do with each other, and after everything is moved from x to z, the old 2000 PDC will become a member server on the new domain running some crappy software. My question, and I have searched, is this: does anyone have any idea how I can migrate users and servers, without having to recreate all users and servers in AD? Besides that, I had done one cutover previously, it required that we copy .pst files, and other stuff over to a new profile on the local PC of the users. Needless to say, this can be quite tedious.

    Secondly, is there some way that I can allow users to choose to log in to either domain using their regular profile, via a dropdown, until the migration is complete?

    I would certainly appreciate all help I can get.

    This will probably answer a lot of your questions

    I don't know how long you're gonna be dragging out the migration but you could create a domain trust between the two domains if need be...
