Sync Distribution groups between 2 forests

    General discussion

  • Hi All,

    I have 2 forests that I am syncing users between, now I was wondering if it is possible to sync groups from one domain to the second including the members and if it is possible what would be the procedures overview ?

  • Hi Mike, thanks for the reply but this i know already, the thing is the usrs are being synced from different forests, meaning the SIDs are different along with the distinguished names. 

    My question is more about the members, how can automatically get the same members from source to be the same members in destination, given that they would totally be different.

  • Following - simular situation here where we are migrating users and distribution lists from one domain to another and have to maintain the distribution list during the conversion then in the end accept mail from source domain on the destination domain and delete the DL's. In the interum we need to be able to sync the groups memberships being editied by group owners.
