  • Active Directory Mess (need help) New AD

    My old active directory was a mess. So I had to make a new one. Reinstalled fresh 2008 R2. Now I want to move just my user accounts and computer from old ad to the new, with all the access permissions. Can this be done? Both ADS are/were 2008 R2. Please help me.

    Look at ADMT.

      The Active Directory Migration Tool as mentioned by wullie there, is the best option for what you need to do.

      you will need to create a trust between the two forests, but then you can migrate users, computer accounts, profiles, groups, whatever you want

      there's 300-odd page document to read, and i'd suggest at least skimming through it before going into it helter-skelter

        Obviously the above assumes you still have the old domain "live", so you have not destroyed all the DCs

        If you do not, rejoining computers is your only option

          use ADMT for user migration and PES (password export server) for password migration.
          also old active directory setup must exist in order to migrate users and password s from the old Active Directory to the new 2008 Active directory.
          You can find many articles on line describing step by step procedures for how to migrate users and password from 2003 to 2008 active directory.

          with regards,
