Active Directory Consolidation and Upgradation RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Not sure this is right place to ask AD related question or not

    We are planning to do two tasks with Active Directory

    1-      Consolidation AD from 4 Child domain to one

    2-      Upgrade AD from 2003 R2 to 2008R2 or 2012

    Our Current setup is:

    We have one Root Domain and in that there are 4 Child domains

    We are planning to migrate all 4 or 3 Child domain users/resources or AD integrated apps./depended task to one Child domain or may be root domain

    I need your suggestion or some helpful document to decide on these tasks

    Same time we are planning to update our AD 2003R2 to 2008 R2, what’s is the best way to do it?

    Should I just add another DC with 2008R2 and transfer role to 2008R2 DC in the Root farm?

    Also, share your thoughts/idea or documents on this kind of task

    Thanks in Advance for all suggestion



    Regards, Swapnil Jain
