Migration 2003 to 2012 AD & Exchange (Two domains into one forest ) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to migration our environment AD 2003 to AD 2012 with (Two independent Domains into one Forest). Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2012 (Two email domains into one domain). Please give me solution about below details. I prepare wrong or right.

    There are two separate Domains „domain-A” and „Domain-B” each one with a single Active Directory Structure. Each domain is controlled by Domain Controllers in two of the main offices. Domain A has around 3000 registered users and Domain B has 3000. There are two Exchange servers, one for each domain.

    =================================+===========================================

    Domain A – 3000 users – location A                    |   Domain B – 3000 – users – location A

    =================================+===========================================

    DC1- Windows 2008 R2                                               |   DC1 - Windows 2008 R2

     (v) DC2 - Windows 2008 R2                                               |   (v)DC2 - Windows 2008 R2

     

    EXCH – Windows 2003 – Exchange 2003    |   (v)EXCCH – Windows 2003 – Exchange 2003

    • We need to bring two domains into one forest with all functional dependencies and trust relationship.
    • We need to implement Exchange Server 2013 and Office 365 hybrid configuration. All Faculty, staff mailbox approx. 1000 mailbox should be migrated to exchange DB and students approx. 6000 mailbox should be migrated to cloud.
    • We have Symantec Mail Security for Microsoft Exchange servers [SMSMSE] installed version 6.5.8 and Symantec Messaging gateway version 10.0.3 and Symantec endpoint protection 12.1 for clients.
    • AD and DHCP installed on Windows server 2008 R2 Enterprise on Hyper-V virtual servers.
    • We have Paragon Drive Backup 11, an image backup solution for servers.
    • We have one Exchange Enterprise 2013 one license and 1000 standard CAL licenses.

    Please verify Design :
