    I have two domains from different active directories

    What are the steps for follow?

    Could you give me the detail of what will have to be done?

  • Hi MeVs,

    You can use Active Directory Migration Tool to migrate objects. The download link is: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=56570.

    The supported operating systems are Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2.

    ADMT doesn’t come with any built-in test options. Develop a test plan and make sure you test each object during and after the migration process.

    There is a comprehensive guide for your reference: http://techgenix.com/active-directory-migration-tool/

    For more detailed information about how to performing migration of domains using the ADMT tool, you can also read the guidance: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=19188.

  • HiSharon Zhao,

    Does "Active Directory Migration Tool " support Windows 2019 Server?

  • Hi MeVs,

    It supports Windows Server 2019. You can read this official document: https://support.microsoft.com/en-za/help/4089459. It clarifies this.

  • Hi Sharon What about the external contact from Skype for business server 2015 from one domain database, are they move when I use ADMT to the Skype for business server 2019 in the other domain? Both domains are from different forests

  • Hi MeVs,

    Do you mean the external contacts are from another domain different from Skype for Business server 2015 domain? In other words, do these external contacts come from a federated domain?

    If they are, these contacts will not be moved by ADMT.

  • I’m my last post I made a confusion Sharon, sorry for that! I exactly refered to the external contact that someone can add in his user list. Could you tell me what can I do in those scenarios? Because it seems to be a side by side migration , so it’s probably than I have to export this contacts manually and import in the target domain in the other forest

  • Hi MeVs,

    You’re right. If you just want to migrate the Active Directory, the contacts can’t be sync. ADMT can move Active Directory objects, such as computers, users and groups.

    If you want to use the original databases, including the users’ contacts, it is better to migrate Skype for Business server 2015 to 2019. As a supplement, you can learn more about migration to Skype for Business server 2019 in the following link: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/SkypeForBusiness/migration/migration-to-skype-for-business-server-2019.
