Assigning Object Locations and Roles

Updated: June 11, 2014

Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2

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

Create an object assignment table that lists the roles and locations for all the objects that you are migrating. Create one table for account objects, such as users, groups, and service accounts, and one table for resource objects, such as workstations, profiles, and domain controllers. In your tables, list the source and target locations for all objects to be migrated.

Before you create your account object assignment table, determine whether the domain organizational unit (OU) structures for the source and target domains are the same. If they are not the same, you must identify the source and target OU in your object assignment tables.

For a worksheet to assist you in creating an account object assignment table, see "User and Group Object Assignment Table" (DSSREER_1.doc) in the Job_Aids_Designing_and_Deploying_Directory_and_Security_Services download of the Job Aids for Windows Server 2003 Deployment Kit (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink?LinkId=14384).

The following illustration shows an example of an object assignment table for users and groups.

To create a resource object assignment table, identify the source and target OU for each object and note the physical location and role in the target domain. For a worksheet to assist you in creating a resource object assignment table, see "Resource Object Assignment Table" (DSSREER_2.doc) in the Job_Aids_Designing_and_Deploying_Directory_and_Security_Services download of the Job Aids for Windows Server 2003 Deployment Kit (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink?LinkId=14384).
