After you migrate all accounts and resources from the source to the target domain, complete the restructuring process by doing the following:
Transferring the administration of user and group accounts from the source to the target domain.
Ensuring that at least two domain controllers continue to operate in the source domain until the resource migration process is complete.
Backing up the two domain controllers in the source domain.
