In the previous article, we have installed Password Export Server Service (PES) v3.1 on source domain and establish trust between two forests. We will move ahead and delegate permissions to user account from source domain in the target domain, configure source and target domains for SID history migration. We will also see the difference in behavior of Active Directory objects in both interforest and intraforest migration and how to create an include file when migration large number of objects.
It is necessary to assign the appropriate permissions to user accounts you are using to migrate objects between forests with Active Directory Migration Tool.
Follow these steps to assign permissions to a domain admin user of the source domain.
Step 1. Log in to domain controller in the target domain with an account having domain admin privileges
Step 2. Open Active Directory Users and Computer snap-in. Click Builtin located under the domain name. On the right pane locate Administrators, right-click it and then click Properties
Step 3. Go to Members tab and click Add
Step 4. Click Locations and choose source domain and then click OK
Step 5. Add the user and then click OK
Step 6. Click Apply and then OK. You are done
Before interforest migration, you need to complete the following tasks:
Open Active Directory Users and Computer (ADUC) Console in the source domain. Create an empty local group SourceDomainName$$$ in Users OU where SourceDomainName is the NetBIOS name of the source domain, for example, mydomain$$$.
Perform the following steps in both source and target domains:
The following table list some differences between interforest and intraforest domain objects migration.
You can create an include file (which is a text file) when you are migrating hundred or thousand of AD objects to save time and energy. In migration wizard, you can specify the migrated objects by providing the path of an include file.
The following table lists the field of an include file with their explanation and examples.
Following are possible examples of the contents of an include file.
John, CN=johnny, johnnym
John, CN=johnny, johnnym, firstname.lastname@example.org
If you want AD objects so they get a new name in the target domain, you can specify the new name in the include file in the following format.
