Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

Restructuring Active Directory® directory service domains within a forest with the goal of reducing the number of domains allows you to decrease the administrative overhead for your organization by reducing replication traffic, reducing the amount of user and group administration that is required, and simplifying the administration of Group Policy. If users change positions or move between locations, you might also move objects between forests on a regular basis. The process for restructuring Active Directory domains within a forest differs from the process of restructuring Active Directory domains between forests and requires careful planning and testing.
