Before rolling the migration out to a large number of computers, test the process in a controlled laboratory setting, and then run a pilot test. Figure 6.5 shows the tasks in the testing process.

Even with thorough testing before the migration, you often can improve the process by making adjustments as the migration proceeds. It is best to move groups of users in phases. Migrate one group or team and make sure the migration is successful before starting the next group. This gives you a chance to modify your plan as needed between groups.
