Intraforest Active Directory Domain Restructure

Updated: September 29, 2013

Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2

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

Reducing the number of Active Directory domains in your forest in turn reduces or simplifies the following:

  • Administration requirements for your organization

  • Replication traffic

  • User and group administration

  • Implementation of Group Policy

If users are frequently reassigned to locations that are part of different domains, you might also migrate objects between domains on a regular basis. The process for restructuring Active Directory domains within a forest differs from the process for restructuring Active Directory domains between forests. This process requires careful planning and testing.
