Interforest Active Directory Domain Restructure

Updated: June 21, 2010

Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2

Applies to: Active Directory Migration Tool 3.1 (ADMT 3.1) and ADMT 3.2

Restructuring Active Directory domains between forests involves relocating objects from source domains in one forest to target domains in another forest. You might have to restructure Active Directory domains between forests to:

  • Migrate a pilot domain into your production environment.

  • Merge users and resources with another organization because of a corporate merger and the need to consolidate the two information technology (IT) infrastructures.

  • Relocate users and resources on a regular basis because of a planned multiforest deployment.

  • Remove objects from your forest because of a divestiture to another organization or to merge later into a new or existing forest for that organization.
