Merging Two Domains

    Question

  • Looking for a guide of best practices for the following scenario:

     

    1 Company with 2 locations running two different domains and two different exchange environments.

     

    Location A is already setup how we want it

    2008 AD domain called locationa.inc

    2007 SP1 exchange server that does mail for externally owned domain locationa.com

     

    Location B needs to be merged into Location A's existing domain and exchange environment.  In the end we will have one exchange server and location B's will be turned off.

    2003 AD domain called locationb.inc

    2003 exchange server that does mail for externally owned domain locationb.com

     

    We want to have location B start using the naming scheme for computers/equipment/usernames/email addresses.

    The idea is to still have email come in on location B email addresses for a short time during transition and then shut off those old email addresses.

    Email is really the big concern for location B.  What is the best way to transition to their email/change email addresses while still receiving mail on the old dresses during transition?

    Thanks,
