Active Directory domain change in SharePoint - what should we be aware of?


  • We will be moving from one Active Directory domain to another next week.  I am trying to understand the impact this will have on SharePoint.

    From what I can tell, the stsadm migrateuser command will allow me to migrate user accounts to the new domain once we changeover.  Is this all that needs to be done?

    I've been told that we won't have access to the new domain until the changeover, and once we've been changed over we won't have access to the old domain.  This makes testing impossible, so I'd like to make sure any problems are ironed out beforehand.  What should I be aware of?

  • when changing domains if you use My sites you may find that it also wipes out all profile specific data.
