export users from my Domain Controller to import to my new Domain Controler

    Question

  • Hello friends.

    I installed a new Exchange 2016 server in my organization and a new Domain Controller as well.

    And I have about 20 organizational units and about 300 users.

    Is there any way to export users from my Domain Controller to import to my new Domain Controler?

    But my old Domain Controller does not have the same domain as the old one, the domain is new.

    Is there any way?

    It sounds like you're going to cross-forest here, and this is one of those things that is going to take some planning and more in-depth conversation then what you typically can get in the forum. I would highly recommend that you engage an experienced consultant who can help guide you through this process.

  • Hello,
    It does not seem necessary to pay dearly for a consultant.

    With the Active Directory Migration Tool (ADMT) tool this can be done.
    But I've never used this tool, I'm reading her documentation to see if I can do what I need with it.

  • i have used it. you need to install it. make sure required ports are open between both servers. You may have to specify the domain admin account of other domain on the ADMT setup which will authenticate and migrate the user.

    Slightly disagree.  There are a lot of other things moving domains touches, like different software packages, that may not play well with a forest migration it's good to find that out before you start moving users and end up finding out an important line of business app was forgotten about or not migrated to the domain properly. 

    In the end, do what you want, It's completely up to you in my experience the best way to have a successful migration is to have a solid plan.

    Also, you should ask questions about the ADMT in Windows Server forum and not the Exchange forum.

  • there are people who add and others who disaggregate.

    As I said, what you said here is not everyone can afford a consultant, which is very expensive.

    Who can pay for an advanced consultation, certainly would not come here in the Forum to ask for help.

    I am migrating my Exchange Server 2016 to another one, so I asked here.

    But if that bothers you so much, I can perfectly delete my post.

  • Hi.

    You can use Microsoft ADMT, or any other application (Quest, etc).

    You have two way, use ADMT and create lab, test and after test apply to production, or you can buy application and support, or ask consulting for this job.

    That's fine.  I just want to make sure you and users have a seamless experience when transitioning domains.  These can be painful if you go start leaping before looking.
