Migration Interforest

    Question

  • Dears,

    there is migration work from 1 forest to another forest

    both forests are Windows 2008 R2, source forest is Exchange 2010. Distenation forest (nothing yet installed) will be exchange 2010 also

    currently we are testing migration for groups and users (SID, PWD, Local Profile) and computers.

    everything seems to be going well.

    My Questions right now are (Sorry, but this job came suddnly and I am forced to do it today before tomorrow so I need help on it):

    1. Do you recommend to migrate the 1000 users and compuers to new forest then migrate exchange mailboxes? or To Migrate each 100 USers and computers then them boxes untill we finished the all migration?
    2. What tool do you prefer to migrate mailboxes?
    3. Any suggestion for the steps?
    4. Any blog with snapshot to help to understand the process?

    Thanks

    I want to know, if its possible to Run ADMT Tool to migrate Groups and Users then to Run Prepare-MoveRequest.ps1 script, if not, what is the reason?
