2-Active Directory Migration

Migrate Active Directory from old version to the latest versions.

Standard Features:

  •  Migration: The process of moving or copying an object from a source domain to a target domain, while preserving or modifying characteristics of the object to make it accessible in the new domain.
  •  Domain restructure: A migration process that involves changing the domain structure of a forest. A domain restructure can involve either consolidating or adding domains, and it can take place between forests or in a forest.
  •  Migration objects: Domain objects that are moved from the source domain to the target domain during the migration process. Migration objects can be user accounts, service accounts, groups, or computers.
  •  Source domain: The domain from which objects are moved during a migration. When you restructure Active Directory domains between forests, the source domain is an Active Directory domain in a different forest from the target domain.
  •  Target domain: The domain to which objects are moved during a migration.
  •  Built-in accounts: Default security groups that have common sets of rights and permissions. You can use built-in accounts to grant permissions to any accounts or groups that you designate as members of these groups. Built-in account SIDs are identical in every domain. Therefore, built-in accounts cannot be migration objects.

Prerequisite(s):

The complete documented site survey as a centralized source of information is necessary to have this visibility and a clear understanding of the devices and their exact location—including rack and floor details—in the data center. Documentation also helps data center admins know how much space is utilized and plan accordingly for future changes and/or expansion.
